News reaching the Siya crew is that Platinum Stars could be set to relocate, as the process of selling the club is currently underway.

For some time now Stars have been looking to sell their PSL status, with the club being linked with various suitors over recent months. However, in September last year, the North West outfit dismissed reports that the club had already been sold at the time, following suggestive media reports. 

At the time the club’s chairman, Cliff Ramoroa, said that there was no agreement in place with any prospective buyer. The chairman did, however, confirm that they would be open to selling the club in the future, and added that the normal process would be followed with the interested parties called to make proposals once the decision to ‘dispose of the club’ has been taken.     

Former owners of Mpumalanga Black Aces – the Morfou brothers – Mario and George, are some of the people whose names have been bandied about regarding the prospect of purchasing Dikwena.

However, sources have confirmed to the Siya crew that a Cape Town-based consortium has emerged as prospective buyers of the club. The club’s current head coach Roger de Sa is said to be involved in the consortium attempting to buy the club, with a view to relocating the club to Cape Town at the end of the current season, should all the conditions of sale be met as per the National Soccer League. 

“The club could be bought and could relocate to Cape Town. A Cape Town-based consortium wants to buy the club, and they are quite close,” said the source.

Contacted for comment, the PSL’s Luxolo September told the Siya crew that he has no knowledge of any proposed change of ownership of the club.

“The PSL Executive Committee, in accordance to the NSL Handbook, is the body empowered with making a decision on a proposed change of ownership and they have not met in 2018. I have no knowledge of any proposed change of ownership,” explained PSL Head of Media Relations, Luxolo September.

Called for comment, De Sa was not available at the time of publishing.

There is a better stadium and the neighbouring residents are well behaved. Why move the club to racist residents and to struggle to play at Cape Town stadium. We experienced with CTC that players were reluctant to leave their families in GP and go relocate in CT. Life there is tough as we see the drug lords and the likes on tv. We have seen of now late players coming back to GP.
