Limpopo soccer teams set to get financial boost from government

PREMIER Soccer League teams from Limpopo, Baroka FC and Polokwane City are set to get a cash injection from the provincial government.

This comes as Bakgaga are flying high in the league and look to have put behind their disastrous 2016/17 campaign which saw them escape relegation by a whisker through playoffs.

Spokesperson for the Limpopo Provincial Government Phuti Seloba said the government would get into an agreement with the two teams as is the case with other provinces and teams from there.

“In line with established practice from other provinces regarding support of professional teams playing in the PSL, the Executive Council has approved that the Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) should, with the support of the of the Department of sports, Arts, and Culture, negotiate and enter into a formal agreement with the two football Clubs of Baroka F.C and Polokwane City F.C,” he said.

Polokwane City which finished in the top 8 last season is having a turbulent start to the season. The team is currently in 14th place with only five points after seven matches.

Seloba added that the LTA will roll out the support to these two teams utilizing funds from their current budget. He said that Treasury will consider making additional funds available in the event of a shortfall.
