ONE of the most followed and popular South African teams, Kaizer Chiefs, will be in Pietermaritzburg this weekend.

AmaKhosi will play Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday at 6pm.

Although the Team of Choice started their current season on a negative note, failing to collect maximum points, they recently managed to win their first league by beating University of Pretoria 1-0.

United’s publicist Brian Zuma says his team has now officially turned the corner and he feels that the win brought back motivation and confidence for the squad.

“I feel we have turned the corner and the players believe in themselves once again. Our first away win means we can win or we can turn the tables against any team in the PSL, especially at home, and players are oozing with confidence,” said Zuma.

Zuma asks fans to buy tickets, which are already on sale, early. He also indicated that socialites, businesspeople, celebrities and people who want to watch the United and Chiefs game from the VIP hospitality tent can do so by buying VIP tickets for R500 per person where they will be served meals and drinks.

General ticket prices are R60 for adults and R20 for children.

Zuma says the AmaKhosi team will be in for the high jump because there is a big grudge between the two teams.

“We are not going to be kind to them because there is a score that needs to be settled between us and them. We sadly lost 3-2 during the MTN 8 quarter-finals after leading 2-0. That score alone still brings back bad memories and is a nightmare for us. They know us well because we always give them headaches and on Saturday we will do the same again,” said Zuma­.
