A Kaizer Chiefs midfielder has commented on the Soweto giants drawing their neighbours’ Orlando Pirates’ home-ground as their ‘home’ stadium for the rest of the season.
As confirmed by the Premier Soccer League, Chiefs and Chippa United will both share the Orlando Stadium in the biological safe environment.
No team is allowed to have their primary home stadium as their home ground for the completion of the 2019/20 season.
The Absa Premiership will resume action on August 11, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates set to lock horns at the Dobsonville Stadium.
Amakhosi will then resume their campaign with a clash against Bidvest Wits at the Orlando Stadium the next day.
Speaking on Chiefs’ official website, Kearyn Baccus revealed that he is satisfied with the home venue draw, though will miss the support of their fans.
“We will obviously miss our fans, but it’s a nice stadium and the pitch is very good. I am happy with the outcome of the draw to play at Orlando Stadium. Now it’s important that we all focus, be mentally strong and play as a team in those eight remaining fixtures,” he said.
