Motsepe Foundation Championship club Marumo Gallants are set to officially relocate to Pretoria, Gauteng ahead of the new season.

Gallants were relegated to the PSL first division after finishing in last position in the DStv Premiership. LimSportsZone has reliably been informed that the club currently host their training sessions in Pretoria West. Gallants are yet to announce their new acquisitions but are believed to have roped in Sammy Troughton as head coach.

The club has also not made a request to the Municipality to host their professional matches at one of the PSL-approved venues. The Polokwane municipality owns the New as well as the Old Peter Mokaba Stadiums.
