Chiefs will play against Baroka FC in a Nedbank Cup match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday evening.

While talking about the importance of their match against Chiefs, Baroka’s Morgan Mammila made a special praise to Amakhosi, as well as their perennial rivals Orlando Pirates for their contribution to Mzansi’s football.

“Anyone disputing that Chiefs and Pirates are the biggest teams in South Africa, let them go to FNB Stadium and watch when the two teams play against each other. Those two teams are on another level, not playing wise but their brands. They are too big,” said the Baroka CEO.

Mammilla, who has already predicted that many goals will be scored during the match against Chiefs, has encouraged the fans to attend the match in the Eastern Cape.

“I’d like to encourage the fans to come to the stadium in their numbers. Let them fill the stadium because we will all benefit from that. I’m sure it’s going to be a thrilling game with a lot of goals. As we approach the end of the season, we want to close in style. Surely, Chiefs will also want to close in style,” said Mammila.

@Shillos10 Sponsors undermine themselves they know that they can't do more than what Motsepe is doing. Honda is a big sponsor though

@Torres5638 I believe teams like Sundowns are doing exactly what youre alluding to " Writing their own history "

@alizebucs1986 Tell you what, PSL will be more interesting,enjoyable and entertaining without Rats and FAU because the fans would be shared almost equally just like at EPL,La liga,Ligue 1,Serie A and Bundesliga where city-teams dominate in fans!

Accordingly, most Chiefs and Pirates' supporters chose these teams because of pressures they got from their parents whom before were supporting teams like Swallows,Pretoria callies and Cosmos! Even now, go to creches and ask those kids about teams they support, and the majority will say Chips because of the pressure from home.

@Torres5638 You are not making any sense. Are you saying that since Liverpool is the most successful team in the history of England football, that will remain forever even though other teams outsmart that?

@alizebucs1986 Bore how???????? Is football about what is happening in the field of play or is about most supported teams? Look boss, the same was said when Swallows were battling relegation. Swallows got relegated and that topic stood about a month in the Media/Newspapers. What about now, it is all forgotten.

Sundowns is a small team.No matter how much money they spent.Thats y they find it hard to attract sponsors.We all know that,none of those will support them when the start losing games
