Welcome to the Home of the Chilli Boys
Chippa United players have been given just over five weeks off from work before returning to Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium next month to begin their preparations for 2016/2017 Absa Premiership season.
Chilli Boys had their most successful campaign in the Premier Soccer League qualifying for the MTN8 for the first time in their history of existence and will be looking to build from that next season.
The supporters can expect new faces when the Club reports for training on July, 6.
Chippa United Chairman, Chippa Mpengesi paid a glowing tribute to the departing duo; Captain James Okwuosa and Erick Chipeta both leaving the Club at the end of their contracts in June.
James as a Captain was a pillar of strength for Chippa United this season missing only one game through suspension.
“James has been nothing but a servant for this Club,” said Mpengesi.
“He was our Captain and an ambassador for the Club. I would like to thank him for the contribution
Chippa United closed the season in style when they brushed aside hosts Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Buyani Sali (17th minute) and Lerato Manzini (66th minute) were on target for the Port Elizabeth based side to ensure they finish on 6th position in the Absa Premiership league log for the first time in the Club’s history.
The Chilli Boys went to the game high on confidence having dispatch Kaizer Chiefs rivals, Orlando Pirates by the same score
