SuperSport United Considering Relocation

SuperSport United could be set to relocate their home ground, club CEO Stan Matthews has revealed.

Over the past decade, the three-time league winners have played their home games at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville but they could be set for a change due to not building a fanbase in the area.

The venue can comfortably hold close to 30,000 spectators but has been shared with arch-rivals Mamelodi Sundowns and Matthews admits a change of scenery could be with the club needs.

“I think that’s a process and we’d be happy to look at that process, we’ve looked Daveyton at the Sinaba Stadium – which is a nice small stadium in the heart of the township where we think we can get nice support,” he said on the OTW Podcast.

“Highlands Park went to Makhulong and they made it a nice little fortress for them so it can be done. There are one or two municipalities that are putting in smaller stadiums as we speak.

“Even in Pretoria, the Caledonian Stadium would be very interesting for us. We would actually grab an opportunity back like when I started in 1999/2000 when played out of Caledonian.

“It was a small 5000, 6000 stadium and if you get 3000 to 4000 students from TUT, it rocked, it was hostile and it wasn’t easy for teams to beat us.

“So I believe if we could get that right; a little Caledonian or Sinaba Stadium, in the heart of the township or in the other right in the city hub.

“People can walk without public transport, just in that Hatfield and the inner-city area we feel we can fill the Caledonian which will bring a better atmosphere.

“It will bring more out of the players and give the club a boost to get into the top-four of the league with a formidable home ground where not many teams can get points off us.”
