Tsholotsho relocates to Beitbridge

Tsholotsho relocates to Beitbridge

SO far so good for Tsholotsho FC!

The decision to relocate to the border town of Beitbridge is bringing in the much needed revenue with the club recording back to back positive balance sheets when playing at Dulivhadzimu Stadium.

"We are making a profit in Beitbridge unlike in Bulawayo where we recorded losses in every home match," said club chairman Mlamuli Phiri.

"In our last match against Yadah FC slightly less than a thousand fans paid to watch the game and 500 fans watched us play Hwange in our season opener.

These are impressive numbers considering that the season has just started," said Phiri.

While playing home matches in Bulawayo, Tsholotsho FC rarely managed to attract 50 paying fans when playing against small teams.

The Beitbridge Town Council charges far less than the Bulawayo City Council for the use of Dulivhadzimu Stadium.

"We pay 10 percent to the Beitbridge Town Council compared to 20 percent that was charged by the Bulawayo City Council whenever we used Luveve or White City Stadium," he said.

And the club will not be hosting giants Highlanders in Bulawayo contrary to social media speculation.

"We are happy with Dulivhadzimu Stadium and we won't disappoint our supporters and the Beitbridge community by moving our home match against Highlanders to Bulawayo," he added.

The players and technical team members still reside in Bulawayo where they hold training sessions and only travel to Beitbridge a day before playing a home game.

The good news on the bank balance seems to be translating to the results on the field of play.

Iziqholo zeZhwane have so far collected three points from three games with a nil all draw against Hwange followed by another 1-1 draw against How Mine.

Yadah FC also failed to beat Tsholotsho FC in Beitbridge and left the border town without scoring in a nil draw on Good Friday.

Tsholotsho FC travel to the National Sports Stadium for a date with Caps United on Sunday.
