The razzle-dazzle and extravaganza associated with MACUFE will sadly come to an end on Sunday 14th, however, that will be glitteringly done with a superlative soccer match of Macufe Cup between Bloemfontein Celtic and Kaizer Chiefs.

Galvanized by the spirit of sheer celebration and anticipation of some sumptuous display of football, the two equivalently competent teams, multitudes of soccer frenzy fans will converge at the Free State Stadium to witness one of the best atmospheres within our spectrum.

Last year’s winners, Kaizer Chiefs currently blowing hot and cold in the domestic league will definitely grasp the chance to firstly try and defend their trophy and subsequently prepare for their upcoming games. Most of their playing squad members including the head coach Giovanni Solinas will for the first time be experiencing the euphoria associated with the cup and that only will spur them to perform with agility.

On the contrary, the head coach of Celtic, Steve Komphela, has tasted victory before in the same competition working for Chiefs when his former team walloped Celtic 4-2 last year. The usually calm and philosophical coach will know that irrespective of the magnitude of the game between the two sides, Celtic’s enthusiastic fans are earnestly looking forward to the game especially after losing against Chiefs last year.

Speaking about the game Patrick Tignyemb, Celtic agile goalkeeper had this to say “We will gladly welcome our visitors to the City of Roses and subsequently show them respect, however, this year, the trophy belongs to us. The competition affords even fringe players the chance to showcase their talent but ultimately Celtic will be crowned champions, we will reclaim what belongs to us.”
