Mamelodi Sundowns and Loftus Versfeld will continue their partnership despite Saturday’s violent protest.

Sundowns spokesperson Thulani Thuswa said what happened has not damaged the working relationship between Sundowns and the stadium.

“We will still be using the stadium in the future.”

“Remember, we have two home stadiums. It’s the Loftus Versfeld and the Lucas Moripe stadium in Atteridgeville,” he said.

“It all depends on the availability of the stadium. For tomorrow’s game, we are playing at Loftus again.”

Sundowns and TP Mazembe of the DRC Congo face off in the CAF Super Cup on Saturday evening.

Last week Saturday, frustrated and angry Orlando Pirates fans stormed to the field (Loftus) after their team conceded a 6th goal in the 81st minute against Sundowns.

Players and coaches from both teams had to retreat from the field.

Police had to fire stun grenades to disperse the crowd who were invading the pitch.

About 15 supporters were hurt in the process.
