In a move that is expected to ignite more passion and excitement to the Rustenburg football fans, Kaizer Chiefs have decided to switch the venue of their league match clash against Golden Arrows to the Olympia Stadium.

This all-important clash is scheduled for Saturday with the 7pm kick-off. Tickets will be available at the Chiefs Village in Naturena as from Tuesday as well as Tlhabane and Phokeng Spar Supermarkets.

Adult tickets will be sold for R15 while juveniles will be able to buy their tickets at the stadium for R5.

Meanwhile, Gold Card-carrying supporters will be required to go to the main gate to gain automatic access.

"We are delighted at this opportunity to get closer to one of our most vibrant branches because Olympia stadium is just across the road from the Rustenburg stronghold of the die hard Amakhosi supporters,” said an excited Putco Mafani, the club’s public relations officer.

“This is in line with our vision of taking games as close as possible to our branches wherever there are good facilities.

“We wish to emphasize the need for our supporters in the area to have the new model supporters Gold Card to enjoy maximum respect and recognition, but most of all peace of mind, knowing that all league games played at home are already paid for in advance,” Mafani added.

Amakhosi are gearing themselves for an uncompromising league campaign on and off the field this season.

"It is going to be nothing but the gold both for the players and the supporters in everything the club set out to do this time around.”

Kaizer Chiefs are currently lying at the 10th position on the log with three points from two games having lost the first league encounter to SuperSport United and won their second beating Dynamos 1-0 in Rustenburg.
