Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala is relishing his side's upcoming fixtures in Cape Town.

Amakhosi will do battle against Bidvest Wits at Cape Town Stadium on December 19, while there are also games lined up against Platinum Stars and SuperSport United in the Mother City.

Shabba says the games are a way for the Soweto Giants to show their thanks to their loyal supporters in the Cape.

"Christmas comes early to the Cape this year, especially for our supporters," Tshabalala told Kaizer Chiefs official website.

"It's always nice to play in Cape Town. The fans in the Cape attend our games in huge numbers and their reception is always great. 

"The people really love us, turning the city into the Cape of Love & Peace.

"That's why, instead of having them coming to Gauteng, we now come to our supporters in the Cape to reward them for all their loyalty towards Amakhosi over the years.

"They drive us to excel."

Before taking on Wits in December, Chiefs take on Maritzburg United this weekend in a Absa Premiership encounter and Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout Cup final.
