Sivutsa renamed Royal Eagles

Posted: 10 June 2014 Time: 02:25 pm

First Division franchise Sivutsa Stars has been renamed Royal Eagles FC, with former Santos coach David Bright taking over as the new head coach.

These changes follow the club's acquisition by Durban-based millionaire couple Sibusiso and Shauwn Mpisane.

Eagles – who have already relocated to Durban – will play their home matches on Friday nights at King Zwelithini Stadium, with Sugar Ray Zulu Stadium as the alternative home ground, and will adopt black with gold stripes colours as their home kit.

Former United FC official Richard Makhoba has been appointed as the general manager of the ambitious club, which will have another ex-Santos man, David Notoane, standing in as assistant to Bright along with Jomo Ntuli on a technical team that will also have Professor Ngubane as technical advisor.

The team has already started preliminary preparations and have been training in Cato Manor in the meantime with the intention of then moving to the Moses Mabhida Stadium outer fields.

“We have extended an invitation to all players that were with Sivutsa last season to come for an assessment, which is starting tomorrow and running up to Saturday. We hope they all turn up," says Makhoba.

"So far and by law we only have four players with running contracts from the squad that was with Sivutsa and we are keeping those four. Our new technical department will conduct the assessments from tomorrow until the weekend.”

Bright joins Eagles after parting ways with Gaborone United back home in Botswana.

This thing of changing clubs names and location after changing owners its not good for history of our teams.....all over the world teams are bought by billionairs but never change names and location. Example chelsea by Abramovic Liverpool by J w Henry Man city by Abu dhabi family etc what if they've changed names and locations supporters was gonna still support them after all history wiped out don't think so!! I think NSL/PSL/SAFA must make it compulsory for new owners not change names and location to save history.
