Limpopo DSTV Premiership outfit, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila Football Club, will have a new name and logo ahead of the new season.
The Polokwane-based club will unveil the new name and logo at an event in Sandton, Johannesburg, on Thursday.
One of the names being bandied about is Marumo Gallants FC.
The Nedbank champions were bought by Abraham Sello from the club’s previous owner, Lawrence Mulaudzi, following financial problems earlier this year.
The current club’s chairman, Abraham Sello, opted to rebrand the club by changing the name and the logo.
The Club’s spokesperson, Rufus Matsena, says the club’s main sponsor will also be unveiled on Thursday.
“We are actually getting rid of the old name which is Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila which is famous as TTM. We are definitely unveiling the new name and the logo. We do have a technical sponsor that is being negotiated,” says Matsena.
TTM’s bank account has meanwhile been frozen after Mulaudzi demanded to be paid R10 million, which was reportedly outstanding when the club was sold.
Matsena, however, says the matter is being handled by their lawyers.
“The issue pertaining to the previous chairman and the chairman is something that we cannot be discussing at the moment because is sub-judicare the matter is handled by the lawyers lets leave it like that until such time we get a go ahead from both parties, especially their legal representative.”
Mulaudzi had bought the then Bidvest Wits club last year. He sold it to Sello within five months due to financial challenges.
