That fixture will take place on Sunday, with Amakhosi hosting the Team of Choice at the FNB Stadium to kick start Hunt’s tenure.

Unlike his counterpart Eric Tinkler, whose club has unveiled several new signings over the last few weeks, the Glamour Boys are yet to receive the outcome of their appeal to have the two-widow FIFA ban overturned.

But Hunt still boasts a relatively strong squad, one that missed out on the league title last season on the final day despite leading for a chunk of the campaign.

Chiefs have already looked at several targets, and one of them is Sifiso Hlanti, who is training with the club. Siya sources have informed the crew that he has been offered a three-year contract and is adjusting to life at Naturena.

The Glamour Boys have also identified goalkeeper Brandon Peterson as a potential long-term replacement for captain Itumeleng Khune.

Saturday’s encounter will give a glimpse into how Hunt will set up his stalls and the result there will also set the tone for the 2020/21 season.

Chiefs have not won a trophy since May 2015.

According to the provisional Dstv Premiership fixture list that was leaked to the media last week, Chiefs is at home against Mamelodi Sundowns on October 24 in their opening league clash for the new season.
