Chippa confirm Cape Town exit

Premiership

Chilli Boys owner Chippa Mpengesi says they will only announce their new home tomorrow, but it is widely expected that it will be Port Elizabeth.

"At one stage it looked like it was not going to happen, but the wish from our side was to be out of Cape Town by the new season," Mpengesi says. "There is a change, but we are going to make the announcement tomorrow."

KickOff.com reported last month that the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality had approached the club to fill the vacancy in the city.

Maritzburg United were also approached, but they turned the move down.

It remains to be seen how Chippa will fare away from Cape Town, where their loyal home support was one of the main reasons they got promoted.
