Chiefs, who currently occupy second spot in the DSTV Premier League, are scheduled to face Cape Town City on Saturday.
The other four matches for the club were against Golden Arrows, Sekhukhune United, Royal AM, and Maritzburg United.
According to the statement released by Chiefs, the club at the moment does not have sufficient players nor technical staff to constitute a team.
Meanwhile, Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup between Orlando Pirates and LPRC Oilers of Liberia has been called off. The Liberian club has pulled out of the competition. It is still not clear why the Liberian club pulled out.
Pirates won the first leg of their third qualifying round 2-nil away in Monrovia last weekend. As a result, the club will advance to the group stages of the Confederation Cup without kicking the ball.
