“We open with a game on the road to the Free State, against Bloem Celtic on the August 23,” said Maritzburg in a statement posted on their website.
“But it is next encounter against the defending champions, Mamelodi Sundowns that will be more interesting. This game will be played on October 14 at Harry Gwala Stadium, with SuperSport United visiting us on October 21.
“We then face another interesting encounter against an ambitious Kaizer Chiefs away on October 24. It is a known fact that the Team of Choice never really struggles against such teams as Chiefs, Sundowns and Pirates, so these are expected to be real good encounters.”
“I am looking forward to the start.” That is all Maritzburg United coach, Ernst Middendorp could say after seeing his team’s fixtures for the upcoming Absa Premiership season.
