Moroka Swallows Football Club is currently playing in the ABC Motsepe League after being relegated from the First National Division (NFD). The team is in financial problems currently and the situation is getting worse day-by-day. The management is not doing enough to help the team.
Since the team was relegated from Premier Soccer League (PSL), things have turned out to be leading the team to its end. If things continue like the way they are at the moment, there won’t be Moroka Swallows in a few years. The team was once one of the powerhouses in the South African football history.
The players have not been paid for months now and the management does not want to comment on the issue. Leon Prins is driving Swallows to an unknown destination apart from football. Since the man refused to sell the team while it was still in the PSL, the team has gone from bad to worse.
The team also owe Dobsonville Stadium (PTY) Limited an amount of R1.6million according to Stadium Management South Africa. If the team management fails to pay the amount, they would not be allowed to use the stadium for their ABC Motsepe campaign. The administrators of the stadium indicated that there are PSL teams who approached them regarding the use of the stadium. If possible, the stadium would be used by a PSL team in the near future.
It is still unknown where Swallows will be playing their home games as things stand. The team is currently planning to campaign in the ABC Motsepe League for standing a chance to be promoted to the NFD.
