Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly facing a land claim dispute centering around the club's R60 million Naturena headquarters in Johannesburg.

The vast training centre of the Glamour Boys was opened in 2002 by late former president Nelson Mandela, and is considered the official training base for Chiefs.

Nonetheless, the Sowetan report that a claim has been made for the land by the Bakwena Ba Mare A Phogole community.

The Bakwena were said to be forcibly removed during Apartheid, and are seeking restoration of the land.

Despite the claim being made, Chiefs are reportedly planning to build a hotel at Naturena and to rename the village Kaizer Chiefs City.

Naturena currently incorporates five training grounds, a high-performance centre, a shop and a canteen. Around 10 years ago, over 500 claimants were paid R40 000 each for being evicted from Sophiatown by Apartheid forces during the 1950s and 1960s.
