Fans to meet Bloemfontein Celtic management after boycott

Bloemfontein Celtic have reportedly agreed to meet with their supporters and listen to their grievances, following the National Supporters' Club decision to boycott Sunday's PSL match.

Fans were instructed to stay away from the Absa Premiership clash against Golden Arrows as a form of protest against how they feel the club is being run by owner Max Tshabalala.

As a result, less than 500 fans were in attendance at the Dr Molemela Stadium to watch as Celtic drew 1-1 with Golden Arrows.

National Supporters' Club chairperson Mabena Pule revealed that a meeting has been scheduled with Phunya Sele Sele's top brass at Siwelele Park on Tuesday.

Pule wants the club to address their concerns about the future of the club, which has been up for sale for an extended period of time.

"First of all, I want to applaud our supporters for a peaceful protest," Mabena told

"Even though the exercise proved fruitful, but one cannot say we are impressed. We are disappointed that the situation has to go to this extent.

"We are happy now that the management has finally responded. We are having a meeting with management on Tuesday where we will tackle the problems affecting our team."

Pule also praised the players for their performance against Golden Arrows in spite of the boycott, and made it clear the fans remain in full support of them.

"We wrote a letter to the players to say we sympathise with them," he said.

"We want to applaud them for the gallant fight against Arrows yesterday."
