Maritzburg United had one of the more interesting campaigns of the teams in the PSL last season. From rock-bottom of the log to saving themselves from relegation in the last 10 minutes of the season, the fans had to endure a heart-racing time supporting the Team of Choice. Now, as they prepare for 2016/17, the ever-optimistic supporters can hardly wait for the new season to begin.
Among the preparations, it has been announced that United will be adding 10 new players and promoting three. Among the new inventory are Bryce Moon and Bevan Fransman.
"Hey, this team is serious this season, this is what I like to see," lifelong Maritzburg United fan Ryan Holtes said.
"I have faith in Ernst and I have faith in the new players, Fransman and Moon have done a lot for this country. I am excited to see my team do better next season. We played so well last season but the results avoided us.
"I am so excited for the new season to start. I think, on the first day of the new season, Maritzburg will make me happier than I was on my wedding day!
"Watch this space, the Team of Choice is coming."
What do you think of the new signings? Do you expect a more dangerous Maritzburg United next season?
