The qualifying criteria were unique: The public would vote by telephone for their favourite football team to participate. The four clubs with the most votes qualified for the tournament. The aim of the tournament was to raise money for charity through the votes and gate fees.
The four clubs selected to participate are drawn into two semi-finals, played one after the other. The two winning clubs then play in a final, later that evening.
In April 2011, the PSL announced that the tournament would be removed from the football calendar. Irvin Khoza, the PSL Chairman said the competition had "outlived its usefulness".
