are thr tickets for the rugby game going to be reasonably priced so they can get a good crowd? You would think they would do all they can to get as full and festive as possible to promote rugby at the venue

Chiefs lift jumbo name


Quote:
By playing their home matches in Durban this season Kaizer Chiefs have consigned Moses Mabhida Stadium's white elephant status to the rubbish heap.

Amakhosi used Cape Town as an alternative venue last season and were on the lookout for a new venue this season.

Durban has not had to fork out a big payment - cities have paid as much as a R1-million appearance fee per game - to bring Chiefs to the 56000-seater Moses Mabhida.

The city pays some of the operational costs of Chiefs' matches at Moses Mabhida and ticket sales are shared.

AmaZulu used to be the anchor tenant at Moses Mabhida before their relegation from the Premier Soccer League in 2015.

However, when Usuthu bought their way back into the Premier Soccer League they chose the smaller King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi as their home ground.

Durban's other team, Lamontville Golden Arrows, use Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu as their home base.

"AmaZulu were failing to fill the stadium and Chiefs were looking for a home outside Johannesburg," said the DA's KwaZulu-Natal leader, Zwakele Mncwango.

If there is a decent crowd for a game, the city can come out about even in revenue.

Crowds, however, have been mixed, possibly due to Chiefs' somewhat unconvincing form in the 2017-2018 season.

About 40000 fans watched Amakhosi lose 1-0 to Supersport United in the MTN8 in their opening game of the season at Moses Mabhida.

About 20000 were there for the Soweto team's 3-0 Telkom Knockout win against AmaZulu on October 28 and about 11000 watched their 1-1 league draw against Free State Stars on November 25.
