Cosmos make U-Turn on Giyani Stadium?


The Greater Giyani Local Municipality remains positive that an agreement will soon be finalised between them and Jomo Cosmos for the club to continue playing their games at the Giyani Stadium.

Cosmos took their last three GladAfrica Championship fixtures (against Moroka Swallows, Cape Umoya United and Richards Bay) to the 20 000-seater Stadium in the Mopani District.

But there have been talks that Ezenkosi have made a U-turn on the agreement after the Municipality failed to guarantee the team with accommodation and transport.

The Municipality spokesperson Steve Mabunda refutes the claims saying they expect Cosmos to sign a new agreement soon.

“As far as we are concerned, we are in good terms with Cosmos and we are expecting them to sign an agreement sometime next week. It has been great hosting Cosmos here and there are plans in the pipeline to build an academy that will help young kids around this town,” said Mabunda.

Cosmos were supposed to take their match against Mbombela United on Saturday to the Giyani Stadium, but have now opted to take that match to Olen Park Stadium in Potchefstroom.
