The Chilli Boys will welcome Sundowns to the Sisa Dukashe Stadium at Buffalo City Municipality, in the Eastern Cape.

Having witnessed a pitch invasion from Orlando Pirates supporters on Saturday following the 6-0 thumping of the Sea Robbers, Chippa United COO Lukhanyo Mzinzi confirmed that the Sisa Dukashe Stadium has beefed up its security.

“We are happy to bring African champions, but I can assure you they won’t have the free fall they had over the weekend,” he told SABC News.

“This is our hunting ground, we enjoy it a lot here, we don’t throw points away – we come here to collect points and move up the table.”
