Celtic supporters and management reach agreement
Bloemfontein Celtic supporters have decided to end almost six months of protests and match boycotts, and agreed to go back to the Stadium and support the team. The supporters, who spent the better part of last season protesting due to alleged bad management and rumours of a team relocation to Eastern Cape, have since decided to let bygones be bygones and work on repositioning and re-branding the team. They initially also wanted the chairman and owner, Max Tshabalala, to sell the team to a local consortium because he couldn't run it properly. This follows after players and staff complained about non-payment of salaries. Supporters chairman Mabena Pule says they were willing to give Tshabalala and management a chance to rebrand the team and take it forward, as long as it stays in Bloemfontein.
