City To Stay In Polokwane

The Siya crew can confirm that Polokwane City will not move from the province as previously speculated in the media.

Rise and Shine finished their maiden PSL season as number 15 and salvaged their status through the PSL relegation/promotion play-offs. The club hosts its home games at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium, however, seems to be unhappy.

Following their relegation escape, the club was reportedly looking for a home outside of the province due to contractual hiccups with the local Polokwane municipality. 

The crew made contact with the club's PRO, Patrick Baloyi, who rubbished the reports, saying the club will be staying in the province.

"We are not planning to leave the province and I can tell you that whatever issues we had with Polokwane Municipality, are resolved. There were certain issues we were unhappy about and we sat down with the authorities and ironed them out two weeks ago. I can confirm that the club will stay in the province for the next season. It's expensive to move a club and we decided from a logistical point of view, to stay. We cannot afford to move a club to either Johannesburg and go back to Polokwne to ferry our players and supporters to the games." 

"There were issues in relation to leases of the stadium and other matters but I will release a statement with all the full report, however, the matter is now solved," said Baloyi.

Although Baloyi could not be specific about the issues, the crew is informed that Rise and Shine's chairman, Johnny Mogaladi, wanted to move the club to Gauteng where he's currently based. The reason behind the proposed move was that clubs from other provinces were paid big money to use the stadium which was unfair to City.

The crew made strides to get a comment from the municipality's manager of communications, Simon Mokoatedi, who answered his mobile phone, but put the crew on hold.
