Why Jomo Cosmos are moving home matches to Giyani Stadium


The PSL has explained why GladAfrica Championship side Jomo Cosmos will now play their home matches in Giyani, Limpopo.

Ezenkosi have been playing their home games at Vosloorus Stadium, Tembisa Stadium and recently at Dobsonville Stadium, a venue they share with fellow NFD side Swallows FC.

Cosmos' first home match at Giyani Stadium will be against KwaZulu-Natal outfit Richards Bay FC on Sunday, September 29 (15h00) followed by encounters against Cape Umoya United on October 6 and Gauteng neighbours Swallows on October 27.

Club owner Jomo Sono could not be reached for comment but PSL senior official Ronnie Schloss has explained why the club took that decision.

"Ja that's right, they will be playing there," Schloss tells snl24.com/kickoff.

"They want to, you know... spread their wings, and we've been battling with facilities in Gauteng so they are looking to spread their wings to Giyani Stadium."

Meanwhile, JDR Stars will play their first home game of the season against Mbombela United at the Soshanguve Giant Stadium.

"It's our first game at the Giant Stadium. We played all our three games away because the Giant Stadium was not ready that time," Stars marketing and communications manager Livhuwani Madzuhe explains.

"We played our first game away, and the one which was supposed to be our home game we communicated with Real Kings and they accepted that we could play away again."
