THOHOYANDOU, SOUTH AFRICA – MAY 30: Mwape Musonda of Black Leopards celebrates during the National First Division Promotion and Relegation Playoff match between Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos at Thohoyandou Stadium on May 30, 2018 in Thohoyandou, South Africa.

Black Leopards return to the South African Premier Soccer League for the 2018/19 season after promotion from the National First Division.

Lidoda Duvha came through the promotion play-offs to seal their spot back at the top table of domestic soccer.

It was also a victory for those in positions of authority who love to pretend they care about a sports team once it starts winning.

The biggest concern ahead of the new season was the state of Thohoyandou Stadium, the club’s home ground in Venda.

A bundle of quickfire improvements have been made to the facility with the club’s promotion apparently catching officials off guard.

The Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane has been on standby if the arena fails to make the grade.

Then attention can return to matters on the pitch and the Black Leopards’ battle for PSL survival.

Themba Ndlovu, Chris Matombo, Khethukuthula Zwane, Lefa Hlongwane and Elton Kapinga are all among the new signings in Limpopo.

Stefano Cusin has also joined the backroom staff to support head coach Joel Masutha in the top tier.

The well-traveled Italian had most recently been working with English club Wolverhampton Wanderers.
