Cape Town - National First Division (NFD) club Thanda Royal Zulu has been put up for sale, according to reports.
According to the Zululand Observer, the Richards Bay franchise had been put on the market due to a lack of sponsorship and financial support.
The club's chairman Pierre Delvaux has said that he was extremely saddened by the decision but that it was out of his hands.
“The painful lesson we can learn from last season is that without a main corporate sponsor, or any sponsorship for that matter, it is extremely difficult to perform at a level to get promoted,” he told the newspaper.
Thanda, known for drawing good crowds at the Umhlathuze Sports Complex, finished this season in fourth place just one point behind Black Leopards and a spot in the promotion/relegation playoffs where they would have sought to be a part of next season’s PSL.
