“We are looking forward to wrap up the final leg of the Cape of Love & Peace in style,” said marketing director Jessica Motaung. “Cape Town showed us love in the two matches that we have already played as part of the Cape of Love & Peace. And this being the finale of the three matches we planned this season for Cape Town, surely all roads and flights will be leading to Cape Town this weekend?”
Chiefs will be hosting the last of their trio of games when they host SuperSport United at the lovely Cape Town Stadium on Saturday February 20. Kick-Off is at 20:15 and gates open at 17:45.
“The stage is set for the mother of all shows considering the ingredients that make up this match,” said Motaung at the prospect of the match that’s happening in the Mother City within the Month of Love. “SuperSport (United) are coached by our former coach (Stuart Baxter) which should be interesting for the fans.”
In the previous match against Platinum Stars most fans missed the opportunity to watch Chiefs live at the stadium due to a last minute rush for tickets. “We urge the fans to buy their tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment,” said Motaung.
To add spice to this fixture, coach Steve Komphela worked alongside Stuart Baxter at Bafana Bafana.
Komphela commented, “We are enjoying a winning streak at the moment and we would like to keep the momentum.” Chiefs have won four in a row including an encouraging 4 – 0 demolishing job at Comoros’ Volcan Club de Moroni in a CAF assignment this past weekend.
“We are taking each game as it comes,” stated Komphela. “We are not looking ahead of ourselves. We have our eyes firmly focusing on the job against United on Saturday. We are looking forward to a great match against a tough opposition.”
Kaizer Chiefs will hold a joint Roadshow with main sponsor Vodacom at Khaya Mall in Khayelisha as part of the buildup to the match. The Roadshow is scheduled to take place on Friday February 19, from 12:00-17:00. “Once again we will be bringing services to the people,” confirmed Motaung. “We are responding to calls by the supporters and so far we have seen tremendous support at the Roadshows.”
At the Roadshows the supporters will have an opportunity to engage with the management. “There will be fun and games and prizes galore for the lucky competitors,” enthused Motaung. In Store will be Chiefs properties ranging from the KC Mobile, KC Insurance to KC Retail.
