Football | Absa Premiership

Extra holiday for Stars



Free State Stars will return from holidays after each of their other 15 Absa Premiership opponents, setting June 30 as the end of their holidays.

The Bethlehem-based club are taking longer than the others because they have just come back from participating in a four-team tournament in China.

Chief executive Rantsi Mokoena says the club will again spent their pre-season at Klerksdorp in the North West province, where the weather is decidedly warmer than the frigid eastern Free State. He called it “a closed camp”.

The club will move to Klerksdorp on July 2 and spend the rest of the moth there undergoing their pre-season training. They have used three different stadiums in Klerksdorp and also nearby Orkney.

The team will also spend time at the High Performance Centre in Potchefstroom.

They are replicating their plans from before the start of the last season when they did the same under coach Steve Komphela.

Stars also use the North West as base to travel to Johannesburg or Pretoria, only some 90 minutes’ drive away, for friendly matches against other Absa Premiership or National First Division clubs.
