Black Leopards have announced that they will be taking the decision by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to keep their games in Polokwane to arbitration. This follows Wednesday’s inspection of the stadium by a team led by the league’s Chief Operating Officer, Professor Ronnie Schloss.
Saturday’s Limpopo derby between Black Leopards and Polokwane City will no longer be played at the Thohoyandou stadium, but at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
The move to the new Peter Mokaba stadium is due to the ongoing construction work at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
The dreams of Black Leopards fans to watch their favourite team play their home matches in the ABSA Premiership at the Thohoyandou stadium, have been shattered, for now.
The supporters, who filled the Thohoyandou Stadium to watch Leopards while playing in the National First Division, will now have to travel more than 200 kilometres to the new Peter Mokaba Stadium to attend their matches.
PSL Chairperson Irvin Khoza spoke to Sports Presenter Robert Marawa regarding the matter.
