Chiefs Boss Lauds 'Historical' Shell Ultra Cup

Kaizer Chiefs Football Manager Bobby Motaung Lauds 'Historical' Shell Helix Ultra Cup

By Ryan Gordon - Jun 04, 2018 10:12 AM
Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has hailed the introduction of the "historical" Shell Helix Ultra Cup after the pre-season tournament was announced last week. 
 
 
The Carling Black Label Cup has long stood as the premier pre-season competition in South Africa, where Amakhosi battle bitter rivals Orlando Pirates on an annual basis in a mega-money friendly, where fans get to vote for the respective starting XIs and substitutes.
 
However, Shell and Mamelodi Sundowns have now looked to break that monopoly following the formation of the Shell Cup, with the inaugural match taking place at FNB Stadium on 21 July 2018, where Kaizer Chiefs take on the reigning Absa Premiership champions. 
 
 
Motaung has applauded the decision to launch the tournament, as well as the impact it can have for both teams when it comes to preparing for the new season, given the level of competition provided in such an encounter.
 
"It's historical," Motaung told the media. "It's historical for Shell to be, (for) the first time, involved in football, and also for us (Chiefs), to be playing a tournament with Sundowns, our own tournament with Sundowns, it's historical.
 
"And I want to thank both the president of Sundowns (Patrice Motsepe) and the chairman of Kaizer Chiefs (Kaizer Motaung) for allowing this to prevail.
 
"I think it's good for both clubs as we all know that this time around we also need to come back with a bang, come back with a strong character in the league, so this type of a game will help us boost our confidence coming into the league and show what we are made of for the next season."

Rats fans are starting to cry out to bring the Telkom Charity Cup hence we talking about new competition. Why they were not crying when it was Black Label Cup. Point of correction to zebbies fans, we didnt choose Zebbies, they are the one invited us on this Plastic cup. We do not have time for plastic cups, the are the one who are the specialist of Plastic Cups.

Rivalry between the two clubs is more entertaining than the Soweto derby.

Useless cup, we as bucs family we won't be taking any part in this useless friendly,we will be watching from distance. Even at stadium we won't be there,as for Sundowns with their 1500 fans they won't even cover a quarter of soccer city stands. This friendly would be a flop

Everyone must include Chiefs for their tournament success yet some think there's a bigger club in Mzansi.
