Football people from around the country,  especially Amakhosi fans flocked into the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium to witness the historic handing over of the PSL Trophy to the 2014/2015 Champions,  Kaizer Chiefs. Nobody wanted to miss this opportunity though it took place over a thousand kilometres away from Johannesburg,  where Chiefs originate and are currently based.  The game was a ‘Sold-Out’ probably for the first time since The Chillies Boys started using the stadium at the beginning of the season.

The hosts, United needed nothing but a win, to avoid relegation however with AmaZulu FC succumbing to their neighbours,  Maritzburg United, it can safely said that they are still safe to continue playing in the lucrative PSL, next season. The visitors started the game on a very high note, scoring 2 important quick goals in the first half of the game. It appeared as if the players on the pitch were fighting for new contracts,  next season. Fans were not disappointed with the display on the day. It was worth their money.

‘I am do happy with a victory,  this is the sweetest victory I have ever experienced in the recent past,  especially after last year’s disappointment towards the end of the second part of the season. Look, to me, supporting this team is like a breath of Oxygen,  without Chiefs I have no life. I drive, fly,  whichever means of transport just to find myself watching mh beloved football,  preferably Kaizer Chiefs.

Saturday was a special day for me, for us Amakhosi supporters who travelled from all corners of the country just to witness the historic moment our team brought here in PE. I must say it is a great gift our team,  the whole team,  has given to us, as fans and supporters,  because we actually won this league in the first 15 games of the season. They have been very consistent,  which consistently made us made until the last game today. To the coach,  I say big up, to players,  keep us happy,  we will continue to support you guys,  through thick and thin. Ntate Kaizer Motaung,  re a leboga. This is the special moment,  z beautiful way of ending the league,  with 2 Guard of Honours,  imagine the feeling my bra’. Masela is one of most famous Kaizer Chiefs supporters who would do anything to watch his team play, live at the stadium.

It is just unfortunate that after the game one life was lost during the celebration. It is believed that he was ‘killed’ the pitch invasion when the final whistle was blown to end the game. The pitch was full with, probably happy fans who wanted to celebrate with their idols,  unfortunately, it did not end well as one life lost is way too much. Perhaps it is about time the logistics of the football matches are reviewed for the benefit of both Football Administrators and the fans at large.
