• Platinum Stars move to Western Cape, change name

    Platinum Stars

    Platinum Stars communications manager Tebogo Mochadibane has confirmed that the club will be changing their name and relocating to the Western Cape.

    The news comes after a turbulent first six months of 2018. First, there was a change of ownership at the North West outfit at the start of the year.

    The side was then relegated after finishing 16th in the Absa Premiership. Dikwena were, however, given a lifeline when the Ajax Cape Town-Tendai Ndoro saga saw the Urban Warriors docked points, dropped down to 16th, and Stars subsequently took their place in the promotion/relegation playoffs.

    Roger Da Sa’s team were, however, unsuccessful in the playoffs, with Black Leopards taking their spot in the Absa Premiership, and Platinum Stars dropped into the National First Division.

    It has now got even worse for the fans of Dikwena with Mochadibane confirming that the club will relocate to the Western Cape, while the club’s name has also been changed.
