Angry supporters of the troubled PSL club, Bloemfontein Celtic, have threatened to march to the Free State government headquarters. They are opposed to the club’s move to take five of its home league fixtures to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.
Supporters have also bemoaned government’s lack of commitment in bailing out the cash-strapped Phunya Selesele club.
Celtic Supporters Chairperson Mabena Pule, says, “They are marching to the provincial government to MEC of Sports, to the Mayor to say if other municipalities are offering money to play their games there, with municipality as metro, why can’t they save Celtic giving them that million and our games remain at Dr Molema Stadium. If Celtic is not playing their games there it will be a white elephant,” says Pule.
Pule says they are also disappointed with the PSL for not recognising them.
“We are disappointed with PSL response. We had asked them to intervene as the mother body of the clubs but they said we are not members of the PSL.”
Meanwhile, businesswoman Sinki Leshabane and her associate Moeketsi Mosola have re-entered into negotiations with embattled club Chairman Max Tshabalala.
A financial and legal due diligence should first be concluded ahead of the sale transaction.
