Chippa switch venues for Chiefs, Pirates



Premier Soccer League new boys Chippa United have switched the venue of their two home matches against the Soweto giants from the Cape Town Stadium to the Athlone Stadium.

The struggling Chilli Boys host Orlando Pirates next Wednesday and Kaizer Chiefs in early March.

Both matches had both been set down for the Cape Town Stadium as Chippa sought initially to exploit the potential a bumper payday at the gate at a bigger venue.

But they have had a change of heart and informed the league of their intention to stick with the Athlone Stadium, one of their two designated home venues.

The Philippi Stadium is the other but the league have allowed Chippa to play just one match there – a Telkom Knockout match against Bloemfontein Celtic.

As most of their home games are night time affairs they have had to play almost all at Athlone Stadium because the lights at Phillipi are not up to standard. But the club are currently installing better floodlights at Phillipi because they want to play all their future games at their own ground, where they have a 15-year lease.

Chippa played their first game at the Cape Town Stadium last Friday when they lost 2-3 in their first derby meeting with Ajax Cape Town.
