LIMPOPO may not have a Premiership club, but the province boasts three National First Division teams and it could have four in the 2009-10 season.
This after Sowetan learnt yesterday that Carara Kicks of Free State are likely to change hands with prominent Limpopo businessman Tim Tebeila.
Tebeila is said to have put in a good offer to buy the team compared to other bidders from Eastern Cape and Northern Cape.
The consortium from Eastern Cape includes Safa executive member and former Bush Bucks chairperson Sturu Pasiya.
The Kimberley group is believed to be enjoying support from the Northern Cape government.
But sources close to Kicks said Tebeila was favourite to buy the team because he was putting in a good offer.
"Tim is a respected businessman and has long expressed his desire to buy the team. He and Motebang Mokoena [the club chairperson] are negotiating well and Mokoena really likes him," said the source.
Mokoena yesterday met the players and the technical staff in Bethlehem where he informed them about a possible relocation of the team.
Kicks made an impressive debut in the first division last season when they finished on the Coastal Stream log and qualified for the playoffs.
They, however, failed to win the playoffs, a feat that would have earn them a place in the Premiership.
