Newbies finally find home ground


Absa Premiership newcomers Stellenbosch FC have finally decided on a home ground to play their league matches this season.

The Cape Town-based side have been forced to play their home matches away from Idas Valley Stadium as it does not comply with the League's standards.

The 2018/19 National First Division champions are still waiting for Stellenbosch University to inform them if they can use the Danie Craven Stadium, which is inside the campus, as their alternative venue.

According to PSL senior official Ronnie Schloss, for now Stellies have registered Athlone Stadium as their home for the 2019/20 season.

"We are still waiting but it looks like it's going to be Athlon,." Schloss tells

According to reports, Stellenbosch are set to be homeless for at least the first six months of the season as Idas Valley is expected to go through some major renovations.
