Three more seasons in the Cape for Chiefs


This season Chiefs are using Cape Town as an alternative 'home' venue for three games against Bidvest Wits, Platinum Stars and SuperSport United.

According to the club's marketing director Jessica Motaung, the Mother City holds a special place in the hearts of Amakhosi.

“Cape Town is abuzz and we are excited about the game this weekend and we want our supporters to come through in numbers,” Motaung said in a press conference.

“We want to embrace our home Cape Town because it holds a special place in our hearts and our supporters have responded positively. We are also leveraging the festive season. If you look at what we did in Polokwane, we were there for four seasons. Obviously this is a start and we are looking at a further three seasons. For us it’s about taking games to our supporters. We’ve always had supporters from Cape Town who travelled to our matches in Gauteng.”

The Soweto giants will entertain log leaders Wits at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, with kick-off set for 18h00.
