AmaZulu explain Kings Park move

Premiership

AmaZulu FC have revealed why they are moving to a new home base after years of training at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Earlier this season general manager Lunga Sokhela revealed their plans to move their training base to Jonsson Kings Park Stadium from next season, and that move is now underway.

The club will, however, still use their fortress of King Zwelithini Stadium for home games, except for select bigger matches at Kings Park.

"We are also in plans to have a partnership with the Cell C Sharks. We want to be pemanent there, that's our focus as a team moving forward."

"The contract between us and Moses Mabhida ended, there's no bad blood between the two," he explains.

"We heard talk doing the rounds about our relationship with eThekwini municipality, which is not true.

"We are still supported by the municipality and Durban tourism. Also the mayor Mxolisi Kaunda has always been regularly to our games.

"We are not planning to move away from Durban. We had and still have a good relationship with Moses Mabhida, they were very good to us."
