Sello said Marumo will be the anchor tenant at Peter Mokaba Stadium, with adjacent Old Peter Mokaba Stadium as their alternate venue, and will train on the rugby field between the two.
Assuming Royal AM and Polokwane City’s court appeals are unsuccessful to reverse Sekhukhune United’s 2020-21 GladAfrica Championship victory and promotion, that will mean three Limpopo clubs – Gallants, Baroka FC and Sekhukhune – in the top-flight again next season.
That two teams from Limpopo – Polokwane City in 2019-20 and Black Leopards in 2020-21 – have been relegated in two years, seems to suggest the region might be saturated by PSL club representation.
“I think it’s the individual approach and individual belief, and your braveness,” Sello said, asked if he sees this as a potential problem for Marumo.
“We’re going to approach it differently, not that we steal from each other and fight [with the other Limpopo teams]. We will bring new talent that the other teams did not identify.
“About being in Polokwane, in Limpopo, as big as it is, the facilities are limited. And the hotels and stadia are the first place to look at.
“And our local government has to send us their bit to comply with Fifa, with Safa and the PSL.
“... And all our government leadership is very supportive. Everything we do they are watching us – for all those [Limpopo] clubs, not only us.
“That’s why, we can move it to Joburg, but those people need it there. I think the former management of the club made a good decision taking it north, and we say, ‘Guys, you were not wrong, let’s make it happen again’.”
