Kaizer Chiefs and Polokwane Municipality have held a media briefing on Friday morning, announcing a new three-year partnership.
Chiefs return to host home games in Limpopo for the first time in eight years, starting this weekend with their tie against Royal AM.
Furthermore, the home games against Golden Arrows on 19 February and Swallows FC on 2 May will also be played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
“We are happy that Polokwane has reached a three-year agreement with Kaizer Chiefs to have them here in our city as their alternative home,” executive mayor of Polokwane municipality John Mpe said.
“This is our drive to promote sports tourism, grow our local economy and ensure maximum utilisation of our facilities that must be utilised to stimulate our economy.
“This reunion calls for celebration of our people in Polokwane , particularly the sports-loving people of Polokwane, our hotels, our public transport operators, the hospitably industry, small bed & breakfast operators in our region.”
Chiefs have good memories of Peter Mokoba Stadium, as they secured their last Premier Soccer League title at the venue thanks to a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United on 15 May 2013, which was enough to crown the Amakhosi as champions ahead of Platinum Stars, with a game to spare.
