After the ups and downs of wanting to play in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) stage, Shauwn Mkhize known as Mamkhize has finally reached a point to play. She sold the status of her Royal AM team in the GladAfrica Championship to the Limpopo side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM).
TTM released a short statement on Saturday and confirmed the purchase “We are delighted to announce that Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila Football Club has of 13 August 2021 acquired the status of Royal AM Football Club in the Glad Africa Championship League. Thus, Royal AM Football Club will change its name to TTM FC and relocate to Thohoyandou Stadium.”
The Limpopo side’s owners are no stranger to buying PSL teams, the club gained fame after it bought then Bidvest Wits and played in the PSL. This time around, it is Royal AM and TTM will play in the Glad Africa Championship.
This came after the controversy surrounding the winner of the first division. Sekhukhune United was declared a winner and Royal AM boycotted all the playoff games. The PSL is sitting with the Disciplinary matter against Royal AM and it will be carried to TTM as the new owner.
As things stand, Mamkhize has splashed R50 million to purchase the financially struggling Bloemfontein Celtic from Max Tshabalala. The reports have it that the PSL leadership has already approved the deal. This means that the bling-bling Mamkhize will be in the PSL’s area for the 2021/2022 season.
