Kaizer Chiefs sensationally confirm groundbreaking three-year stadium deal


PSL heavyweights Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that three of their remaining home games have been moved to yet another venue.

At the beginning of the season, Chiefs laid out a plan five of their home matches away from their traditional home – FNB Stadium – due to consistent low turnouts for games that don’t involve Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns even prior to the covid-19 pandemic.

AmaKhosi have already used Moses Mabhiba as their home for games against Richards Bay and Chippa United. 

They were scheduled to play their home match against Royal AM on January 29 and Arrows (February 19) at the Free State Stadium and then host Swallows at Mabhida on May 2. 

Those three games have now been moved to Peter Mokaba Stadium and will still be played on the same dates.

With the PSL having confirmed this in their updated fixtures a week ago, Chiefs have done the same.

“Kaizer Chiefs will play three of their DStv Premiership home matches in Polokwane this season after reaching an agreement with the Polokwane Municipality,” reads a statement from the club.

Chiefs also confirm that they will be playing some of their home matches at the Limpopo for three seasons.

“We believe in long-term agreements and being in Polokwane for three years means we will be working with the municipality to achieve our goals or promoting sport, particularly football in the city,” says the club’s marketing and commercial director Jessica Motaung.

The Polokwane Municipality is using Chiefs’ pulling power as a strategic move for economic growth in the city while boosting tourism and creating jobs.

Chiefs have previously used the Polokwane venue as their home ground with good attendance just like has been the case when they play in Durban.

Chiefs’ home – the FNB Stadium – will still host the rest of the home league matches against Sekhukhune United (January 7), Sundowns (January 21), Pirates (February 25), Stellenbosch (April 1), Marumo Gallants (April 8), and Cape Town City (May 20).
