Last season’s position: 6th
The Pirates didn’t have a great season considering the quality of their squad, they failed to qualify for the CAF Confederation tournament. Although they did play against RSB Berkane in the finals of the CAF confederation cup where they lost on penalties to the Moroccan-based team.
The promising thing this season is that the Pirates moved away from co-coaching and appointed a leader in Riveiro, who didn’t do badly in his previous job in Finland where he was in charge of FC Inter Turku.
Pirates lost twice in the previous fifteen home games with seven wins and six draws.
Last season's position: 15th

They survived the division because of their victory against the University of Pretoria in the relegation/promotion playoffs.
In the previous fifteen away games, they won two, drawn eight and lost five.
