This game presents one of the biggest challenges facing Kaizer Chiefs in their campaign for the prestigious R2m first prize Coca Cola Cup 2001.
For the very fact that in the past the Coke Cup had been a tournament of the ‘dark horses’ with the trophy, won by relatively ‘smaller’ clubs in South African football, whereas Amakhosi, Orlando Pirates and Sundowns had never won the trophy; Kaizer Chiefs is approaching this game with all caution, concentration and focus that is driven by the hunger to have the R2m coming to Naturena.
With the kind of players we have at the moment, the unbeaten run and the very positive mind set with all our players, I do not see Hellenic stopping our aspirations. Let me warn, however that it is never going to be smooth sailing because cup games are tricky and all teams rise to the occasion when facing Amakhosi.
During the 1999 Rothmans Cup Hellenic upset our plans, and they never went any further with the competition afterwards, and that demonstrates that our plans have to bear in mind the potential any small club has in derailing our dreams of taking the Coke Cup.
Fortunately, for us the draw took us to Cape Town, our second home ground where the majority of the crowds on the stands will be Kaizer Chiefs fans and supporters, so we will dominate on and off the field. It’s like “Home away from Home”. The idea of the double header is the best thing ever to happen to all Western Cape football lovers and I salute all those that made it possible.
Our Western Cape supporters are going for a great football feast this weekend, tactical but yet highly entertaining, and we plead for tolerance and a good sportsmanship spirit. Our branches in KZN, Free State and Eastern Cape are going down to the ‘Mother City’ – “where a cloud covers the Table Mountain and Vodacom covers the rest”
For the other supporters in and around Gauteng a Semi-Luxury coach has been booked, hotel accommodation has been secured and open stand tickets have been bought; all for R425 only, for this return trip. A glorious outing to the country’s most beautiful province. We urge all our branch chairpersons to take advantage of this offer. Real good value for money!
