Three Limpopo soccer teams in the PSL will share the new Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane as their home-ground while waiting for the PSL to approve two more stadiums.

Baroka FC, Black Leopards and Polokwane City will be playing their home matches at Peter Mokaba.

The Old Peter Mokaba and Thohoyandou stadiums were found to be unsuitable to host PSL games for now.

The PSL is concerned that the Old Peter Mokaba stadium does not have a back-up generator in case of power failure.

The stadium has been home to PSL side Polokwane City for years. The club used New Peter Mokaba as an alternative ground when hosting crowd pullers such as Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.

Rise and Shine, as Polokwane City are fondly known by fans, have decried what they call lack of commitment by the Polokwane Municipality to resolve the matter.

“Professor Ronnie Schloss (PSL official) assessed the Thohoyandou stadium for the third  time today, after it was found unsuitable to host PSL games during his two assessment earlier this month.  Black Leopards have registered the stadium as their home ground,” says Leopards spokesperson is Berry Ramunenyiwa.

“We respect the fixture for now in the sense that in case that there’s nothing if the stadium is not ready we are not even looking at that we are very positive the stadium is at a standard will meet requirements of the PSL.”
