Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be Man City’s opponents for their South African tour in July, although no formal statement has been made
Just a few hours after successfully launching a “Football Invitation in support of Mandela Day” in which the English giants Manchester City will be part of, the organizers, Matchworld, have said that City’s opponents are still to be confirmed although Goal understands that Kaizer Chiefs will be one of the two teams to take part in the tournament.
However, AmaKhosi revealed that no formal agreement has been reached between them and the organizers, but they didn’t rule out the possibility of participating in honour of Dr Nelson Mandela.
“We are aware that Man City will be in the country in July, but we haven’t signed anything with the organizers of the tournament as they highlighted that they are still going to confirm the opponents,” said the Chiefs official.
“However, I must admit that it will be an honour for us to play Man City in honour of our former president, but all will be made public once the agreement has been reached,” he said.
The first game of the tournament will take place on July 14 and Chiefs are likely to be City’s first opponents, as they will be preparing for their Carling Black Label Cup against Orlando Pirates on July 27.
It remains to be seen who City’s second opponents will be, but reports suggest that Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United are all earmarked as potential opponents to face the Blues on July 18.
