Kaizer Chiefs Leave Cape Town Heartbroken

A controversial topic is once again on the rise. Last season, after a hard-fought campaign by the club's Cape supporters, they managed to get Kaizer Chiefs to move three of their home games to Cape Town. It was largely a success, but now it seems Naturena has changed its mind once again.

It now appears that three of Amakhosi's home games this season will, instead of being played Cape Town Stadium in the Mother City, be played in Durban.

"Kaizer Chiefs leaving Cape Town has really left me heartbroken and disappointed."

These were the words of Cape-based Amakhosi faithful Russell Madonono.

"I was really surprised because, last season, they gave us three games and I thought it was a success, the attendance was really good, higher than in Johannesburg in fact. I thought they would reward us and give us more games."

Apparently the reason for moving the games to Durban has to do with PSL regulations.

"They say that the PSL won't let more than three teams compete in one stadium and that's why they must move this season. But when they were coming to Cape Town, they were discussing the possibility of playing in Athlone. Why can't they play in Athlone?"

Russell has been a dedicated Chiefs fan for many years and began travelling from Cape Town to Soweto for games when a return taxi fare cost about R250. To put that in perspective, it costs roughly R800 today.

This new move by Naturena will surely be met with a backlash from the club's Cape supporters, but time will tell how successful it will be.

What do you think of three of Chiefs' games being moved to Durban?
