Cape Town - Platinum Stars
spokesperson Tebogo Mochadibane has revealed that the club will relocate
from the North West Province to Cape Town, and will be renamed Cape
Stars were sold to a consortium last January which included coach Roger de Sa, though fortunes on the pitch were very poor as Dikwena were relegated to the National First Division.
Nonetheless, Mochadibane confirmed that Dikwena will cease to exist in 2018/19, and their future lies in the Mother City under the new owners.
He told Kickoff: "Yes, it's not hearsay, the team is relocating to Cape Town, it's true. And they have changed the name to Cape Umoya United. It's no longer Platinum Stars.
"So all the things that you've heard, it's true, it's not hearsay."
He concluded that the staff and personnel to be retained in the NFD is yet to be decided, saying: "That process is still on. You must remember you don't need the whole backroom staff in the NFD like you do in the PSL set-up.
"So there'll be changes obviously with regards to that. But that process is still on.
"Look, I think there will be negotiations with the players, there will be those who will travel with the team. And you must remember there are players who already had pre-contracts with other teams, so they wouldn't be traveling to Cape Town with the team."
