A Day Of Mourning For Mpumalanga... R.I.P Black Aces

The news is official. Mpumalanga Black Aces will be sold before the upcoming season. Chairman Mario Morfou sold the club to John Comitis for a lucrative offer that apparently could not be refused. This is not the first time this has happened in South Africa, but it does seem odd, selling a team that finished fourth in the PSL and also housed the league's top goalscorer… Where does this leave the supporters?

It seems the sale is not seen as a good thing by most supporters. Although the business side of things has been explained, it still leaves some with a sour taste in their mouths. Football clubs should be about a bit more than business; they carry the hearts and minds of those who support them.

"I feel sorry for the supporters." – Leni

"It's all about business… Where is the spirit of the game in Mzansi?" – rrexxon

"That's a blow for the people of Mpumalanga." – Stupe Axe

"This is so wrong for us Mpumalanga people. If Mbombela United does not get promoted to the PSL next season, we will have no representatives." – Sir Leeroy 246

We will contact fans throughout the day to get their reactions, but it seems, from the outset, that a dark cloud hangs over Mpumalanga today. Many seem disturbed by the empty stadiums in South Africa, but how does anyone expect a team to have a passionate following when their supporters do not even have a home?

Do you think it's good or bad news that Black Aces have been sold? Can you see any merit for the football?
