Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala says he will give preference to local enterprises as he wants the club to remain in the Free State province.

The Celtic chairman shocked the football fraternity last week announcing that the club is up for sale.

Tshabalala said he is selling the club because he is struggling to cope with the financial demands of running a football team.

Celtic and recently-crowned Nedbank Cup Champions Free State Stars are the only clubs from the Free State province playing top-flight football.

“As you know looking at the history of the club, all the previous owners of the club were from the Free State and kept the team here," Tshabalala told the SABC.

“The reason I have gone public is because I was looking to keep the team in the Free State, especially in Bloemfontein.

“I’m looking at somebody who can maintain the trend and keep the team where it has been through the years.

“But if there are no offers from here, we will sell to those coming from outside our province because unfortunately at this stage the three offers that we have are from outside.”
