Cape Town - According to goal.com, Chippa United, who were set to relocate, will no longer be moving their home base to Port Elizabeth after negotiations with the PE municipality broke down.The Chilly Boys Chairman Simon ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi finally announced that the teams’ proposed relocation has been called off, following a series of meetings between the club, Nelson Mandela Metro and the Stadium Management.Chippa United General Manager Wanda Mbenguzana released a statement on behalf of the chairman, stating that the club will not be relocating.“We will no longer be relocating the team to Port Elizabeth as we had earlier anticipated and reported in some sections of the media,” said the Chairman Simon Mpengesi.“This is a sad announcement, mostly for our fans and to the people who are associated with the club in the Eastern Cape. But because of the true value of football and the commitment we've made to those close to us, we will not be all lost in the Eastern Cape; there will be plans of bringing the club to the province soon, one way or another.“We are committed to expanding our footprint to the Eastern Cape,” added Mpengesi.“We are now focusing on our preparations for next season. Our objective is to be competitive and to be a force to be reckoned with in the PSL next season".“The players are off to recharge and we will announce our preseason plans in the next couple of days. We are fortunate this time around that we have enough time to take stock and plan for the upcoming season.The club now faces a dilemma because they cannot use Philipi Stadium as their home venue as it is not suitable for PSL matches.“Ours now is also to focus and re-building Phillipi Stadium, and make it our fortress this coming season, and hopefully many years to come. We would like to see the stadium hosting no less than 20 000 fans in the near future,” he concluded.
