In welcoming the move, Bucs have reminded their fans about one of their memorable matches there, which was a league clash against Mamelodi Sundowns in 2009, by posting a snippet of the video on social media with stars like Teko Modise and Katlego Mashego causing havoc.

In that match, Ruud Krol’s side showed class by beating the Brazilians 2-0 with goals from Mashego and Modise, despite finishing the game with 10 players after Lucky Lekgwathi had been red-carded.
