Director Sinki Mnisi has announced that the club will be playing home matches at the Makhulong Stadium next season.

This follows days after Mnisi lamented the municipality for not backing up the club and threatening to relocate should the municipality not help with some of the issues they have, particularly taking care of the ground in Tembisa.

“I am grateful to the mayor for his prompt intervention to the matter! We will continue with such engagements but above all, Tembisans and entire Ekurhuleni soccer lovers can now rest assured that we will be playing all our matches here next season. We had a fruitful discussion,” Mnisi was quoted as saying on the club’s Twitter account.

“We will release a comprehensive report in the next few days. Taking into consideration that the mayor’s delegation will have to submit its report first.”
