Press conference on sale of BFN Celtic postponed


The press conference between the Executive Mayor Olly Mlamleli, Bloemfontein Celtics management and the Free State business community, which was supposed to be held on Wednesday 30 May 2018 at 11:00, has been postponed.

Executive Mayor, Cllr Olly Mlameli, has postponed indefinitely the press conference that was scheduled to take place this morning with Bloemfontein Celtic management and the business community.

In a statement released by the municipality spokesperson, Qondile Khedama, he explained that this was done with the intention of consulting broader regarding the retention of the soccer club in Mangaung.

“We felt that we haven’t consulted broadly with our stakeholders. The postponement will give us ample time to consult broadly with our stakeholders and ultimately give members of the community feedback on the results of these consultations,” he added.

Khedama concluded by stating that they will inform the media of the outcomes and the new date for the press conference.
