Lamola: Orlando Stadium Is Like Wimbledon

Former Kaizer Chiefs player, Vusi 'Computer' Lamola has reacted to the Soweto giants drawing the Orlando Stadium as their home ground for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

The 2019/20 Absa Premiership campaign will resume action on August 11, in a biological safe environment; this after more than four months without domestic football due to the nationwide lockdown.

Amakhosi will utilise the Orlando Stadium for all of their home fixtures which will be against Bidvest Wits, Stellenbosch FC, Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United.

“Orlando Stadium is our home, it’s part of Kaizer Chiefs’ rich history and it holds so many great memories,” Lamola said on Amakhosi’s official website.

Chiefs won their first-ever league title at the Orlando Stadium in 1974.

“Orlando Stadium is like Wimbledon in England, every tennis player wants to play at Wimbledon, because of its fabulous history. The same is true for Orlando Stadium when it comes to football. Let’s not forget that we, as Kaizer Chiefs, gained our enormous popularity during the time that this stadium was our home.”

“To revisit Orlando Stadium now in our 50th anniversary year is special for a club like Chiefs with such a very rich history. Of course, to have our supporters there would have been magnificent,” he added.
