Construction at the Malamulele Stadium in Limpopo, where GladAfrica Championship side Black Leopards are set to play their home matches, has been completed.
Leopards announced late last year their intentions of moving the club’s training base and matches from Polokwane to Malamulele.
Lidoda Duvha hosted eight of their opening matches of the 2021/22 season at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
This was after a fallout with the Thulamela Municipality, who own Thohoyandou Stadium, over the R27 000 per match fee to utilize the facility.
Leopards have already moved their training base to Saselamani and will also see their matches played at Malamulele Stadium.
FARPost has been informed that both the Collins Chabane Local Municipality and the club are expecting officials from the Premier Soccer League to visit the venue sometime this week to assess its readiness to host professional matches.
“Malamulele Stadium is 100% complete and what we are waiting for is the inspection by the PSL,” said Municipality spokesperson, Robert Mathye.
“We are very much happy to welcome Black Leopards and they are also very happy about the developments. The new capacity after the construction of the new pavilion is 15 000,” he said.
The first home match of the year for Lidoda Duvha will be against Cape Town All Stars on 23 February.
