Moroka Swallows take on Chippa United on Sunday at Dobsonville Stadium. News broke this week that we will be announcing a new sponsor shortly. We urge all supporters of the Beautiful Birds to come to the game and find out who our new sponsors are.
In celebration of the new sponsorship, entrance to the stadium on Sunday will be free!
There will be a half time penalty shootout by randomly selected spectators against one of the Swallows goalkeepers, with prizes for those who score.
We have played Chippa United twice in the past, both during the 2012-13 season.
In the first encounter, the sides drew 1-1 at Dobsonville Stadium with Lerato Chabangu and Mkhanyiseli Siwahla on the scoresheet. A certain Larry Cohen was in the Chippa side that day.
In the second encounter, we lost 2-1 away at the Philippi Stadium with Bennett Chenene scoring our goal, and Chippa's goals coming from Mbulelo Mabizela and Msekeli Mvalo. Asavela Mbekile was in the Chippa ranks that day. He later joined Swallows.
Lantshene Phalane returns for this game after serving his two match suspension. Sandile Sibande is also available after being ineligible vs. his parent club Bidvest Wits for the last game.
