DStv Premiership side TS Galaxy FC have confirmed they will be leaving the country for Turkey on a mid-season camp for a period of 16 days in preparation for the second half of the season.

Like many leagues around the world, the Premier Soccer League is on a break as all focus is on the FIFA World Cup currently taking place in Qatar.

As a result, The Rockets have decided to hold camp in Turkey from December 3 until December 18.

According to Tim Sukazi the club might benefit a lot from this trip as it may not only open doors for their players but might also help forge some relationships with top Turkish clubs like Galatasaray.

"We are planning to play a few friendly matches once we are there," Sukazi tells KickOff.

"Such countries might assist us as South Africa in taking our players to the big leagues.

"Remember the likes of Steven Pienaar had to first go to countries like the Netherlands before moving to the Bundesliga and Premier League.

"He had to start somewhere before Everton came knocking.

"Benni McCarthy as well had to start somewhere before his move to EPL.

"We are going their camp, but also to grow the TS Galaxy brand."

Galaxy's first League match after the FIFA break will be against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on December 30.

The Tim Sukazi-owned club is currently in position 12 on the DStv Premiership log table with 13 points in 12 games.

The Sead Ramovic-coached side has so far only won two of their 12 matches and will hope the camp will help in bringing back the mojo in their players.
