Jomo Cosmos is set to host the four team tournament which will be played at Ezenkosi’s new home at Vosloorus Stadium on Sunday.

“We are back where we belong and we are happy that the PSL has approved the ground. All along I’ve been playing in the stadium,” Jomo Sono told the SABC.

“I got promoted and then I was told I could not play at the stadium because there are no turnstiles, and they were right.”

Mbabane Swallows boss Victor Gamedze confirmed the invitation from Cosmos before hinting on a two weeks rest after the tournament.

“The players have not had a rest for three seasons now and it will help to give the two weeks away before the start of the season,” Gamedze said.

Cosmos have also invited Bulawayo Highlanders of Zimbabwe and Simunye Diaspora, a non-professional team of South African-based foreign nationals, to play in the tournament.
