Chiefs Arrive In Tanzania

Kaizer Chiefs have touched down in Tanzania on Thursday evening and the full squad passed the COVID-19 tests every member had to undertake.

The Glamour Boys traveled with 23 players to Dar es Salaam ahead of their second leg in the CAF Champions League quarter-final, ready to make history.

After winning the first leg 4-0 at the FNB Stadium last week, Gavin Hunt’s men could qualify for the last four of the competition for a first time in the club’s history.

Upon arrival in the east African nation, the traveling contingent had to undergo COVID-19 tests in order for them to be able to enter the country.

However, the good news is that everyone received a negative result and all moved swiftly to the hotel, Chiefs confirmed.

The club also said they would have to undergo another set of COVID-19 tests at the hotel in order to get access to the stadium and play the match.

A local COVID-19 officer, Dr Violet Lupondo of Tanzania, will be accompanied by Dr Joseph Kabungo from Zambia to oversee the PCR testing process.

Meanwhile, CAF confirmed that 10 000 fans are allowed to enter the National Stadium on Saturday, meaning Amakhosi will play in front of spectators for a first time since March 2020.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 15:00 SA time on Saturday.
