Celtic back to play in city centre



The lights at the Botshabelo Stadium have been declared unacceptable for use in the Premier Soccer League, forcing Bloemfontein Celtic to move their key midweek match against Ajax Cape Town to the Free State Stadium.

But they will play their last game of the season at Botshabelo against SuperSport United on May 19.

Celtic have had a nomadic existence this season, initially based at the Seisa Ramabodu Stadium but forced after the Christmas break to move because of repairs to the venue – the third time in as many years that the stadium has been shut for renovations.

Celtic then moved to Botshabelo as named Free State Stadium as an alternate venue.

The league ordered the club to change the hosting of their recent floodlight game against AmaZulu from Botshabelo back to Bloemfontein city centre because the lights at the Free State Stadium were much better.

The 1-1 draw against AmaZulu on April 8 was the first game that Celtic hosted at the Free State Stadium since beating Orlando Pirates there in mid-December.

Last year Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality mayor Thabo Manyoni handed over ownership of Seisa Ramabodu Stadium to the club.
