Amakhosi finished second in the Absa Premiership last season and were invited to represent South Africa in the Champions League alongside champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chiefs fans had to wait for confirmation from club management as it was unclear if the Glamour Boys would participate in Africa’s premier club competition.

Kaizer Chiefs Chairman Kaizer Motaung, however, broke the news on Metro FM last night to Robert Marawa and guaranteed that Amakhosi will take part.

Chiefs played in this year’s Champions League, after winning the 2012/13 league title, but were knocked out in the final qualifying round for the group stages by AS Vita of the DR Congo.
