EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu says Kaizer Chiefs must start charging host teams a percentage fee

Economic Freedom Fighters deputy president Floyd Shivambu has an opinion that should split the local football fraternity.

As reported by Sports Brief, Shivambu believes that teams hosting Kaizer Chiefs - the most supported club in the country - must start paying their glamorous visitors a percentage fee of revenue generated from ticket sales when they are in town. His opinion came after Stellenbosch FC tweeted that their MTN 8 quarterfinal against the Amakhosi at the Danie Craven Stadium was sold out.

Chiefs went on to win the match 4-3 on penalties after the tie ended 1-1 after extra time. Cape Town City chairman John Comitis went on record saying ticket prices were raised when Chiefs visits the Cape Town Stadium for a variety of reasons.

Specifically, they were priced as R40 for small games, R80 for Orlando Pirates, and R100 for Kaizer Chiefs.
