Orlando Pirates have communicated the details of their trip to Seychelles for the CAF Champions League match.
The Buccaneers left for Seychelles in the early hours of this morning for the return leg of their match against Light Stars in the preliminary stages of the continental competition.
Bucs won the first leg match 5-1 at the Orlando Stadium last Wednesday.
“The Orlando Pirates squad left for Seychelles at 2 am this morning ahead of their second leg match against Light Stars on Wednesday afternoon. The Buccaneers carry a 5-1 aggregate lead going into this match and will look to secure passage to the next round with another commanding display against a spirited Stars side,” confirmed Bucs on the club’s official website.
“Should Pirates advance to the next round they will face the winner between Volcan Stars and African Stars. The first leg result between these two sides ended in a goalless draw with the second leg to be played in Namibia on Wednesday.
“Pirates’ flight schedule includes a five-hour flight to Mahe followed by a shorter flight on board a smaller plane to Praslin – an island off the main archipelago of Seychelles islands. Due to the size of the plane; the Buccaneers will need to break up into two smaller groups as they make the 15-minute flight across the ocean.
