After months of speculation as to who English Premier League side, Manchester City, will face in South Africa, it has been confirmed that their opponents will be SuperSport United and AmaZulu.
City announced earlier this year that they would be heading to Mzansi to take on two PSL outfits, although wouldn’t comment on which two teams would be taking part.
It had originally been thought that Kaizer Chiefs would be one of their opponents, with the Amakhosi having had talks with the organisers, Matchworld, although they will now not be taking part.
Usuthu’s official website confirmed the two South African clubs involved, stating that they would be hosting City on July18th, four days after Manuel Pellegrini’s men take on Matsatsantsa in Gauteng.
AmaZulu’s marketing manager, Lunga Sokhela, said in a statement, “We have reached an agreement with the event organizers which is Matchworld and as of now we will play Manchester City on the 18th July. All details pertaining to tickets sales will be released soon.”
The games will be taking place as part of the Mandela Day celebrations and will be dedicated to former President, Nelson Mandela.
