Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) have officially changed their name to Marumo Gallants FC. The new look club was unveiled at a press conference in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Abram Sello bought TTM from Lawrence Mulaudzi in February.

When he took over at the club, Sello vowed to turn things around at the Limpopo club, which he relocated from Giyani to Polokwane.

TTM underwent numerous changes since they bought the Premiership status of Bidvest Wits last year.

In an interview with City Press last week, Sello said the new club would be, by and for the people of Limpopo. “TTM is no more and we are starting a new chapter. We want to start on a clean slate and we are proud that we are able to do so,” Sello said.

The club will remain in Polokwane and will be for all the people of Limpopo

“Many people didn’t think the club would survive but not only did we survive we managed to win a trophy within a few months.

“I am grateful for the support we have received as a club from the beginning. The club will remain in Polokwane and will be for all the people of Limpopo.”

Marumo Gallants FC will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup after TTM won the Nedbank Cup.
