Cape Town - Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League outfit Highlanders plan to play CAF Champions League winners Mamelodi Sundowns in a friendly match to help both teams prepare for their respective seasons.
The Bulawayo giants announced at their first press conference of 2017 that they are scheduled to travel to South Africa for a training camp. Siyinqaba get their season underway in April while Sundowns are on a mid-season break due to the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon.
As such, acting Highlanders chairman, Modern Ngwenya, confirmed the club's plans to face the Brazilians.
"We may take our pre-season preparations to South Africa for a training camp, but it's still in the planning stages," he told Newsday.
"The probability is that we will go to Polokwane for between four to seven days, depending on our sponsors and how much they are prepared to go in terms of hosting us.
"We may play practice matches and friendly games against the likes of Baroka Football Club, Polokwane City and even Bloemfontein Celtic, but the match that may come to fruition is the one against Mamelodi Sundowns.
"It's still in its infancy, but we are looking forward to a trip to South Africa. That will be refreshing for the players and a morale-booster ahead of the start of the season."
