PSL side Marumo Gallants are set to leave Limpopo and move some of their home matches to Mangaung in the Free State during the current season. 

This comes as the club is on the verge of permanently relocating to that province. The news of Marumo moving first surfaced in late 2022 but were vividly denied by club boss Sello Abram. 

They are set to join fellow Limpopo club Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila who recently relocated. TTM played their first match at Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Casric Stars on Saturday. 


On the other hand Marumo are set to play their first match at the same venue. They will host TS Galaxy on Saturday, 4 March.

They are also scheduled to host Mamelodi Sundowns at the Province for the Nedbank Cup last 16 round. 


Marumo have the most unsettled team in the PSL this season. They began the season at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Limpopo before their much publicized fallout with the Polokwane Municipality who own the facility.

Their issue was that they wanted 100% of the gate takings instead of the current 70-30 split. 

The club subsequently moved their matches to the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace in Rustenburg. This includes the big matches against Kaizer Chiefs as well as Orlando Pirates. 

They also play their CAF Confederations Cup home matches at the Dobsonville in Soweto. News coming out of Mangaung is that there is set to be a rebranding of the club.  

They will be called Marumo Celtic as of next season but there has been no clarity on the change of owners. The club will also change their colours to green and white which are the colours for now defunct Bloemfontein Celtic.
