#NedbankCup2020 Club Profile: Amavarara FC

ABC Motsepe League side Amavarara will make their debut in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 after defeating Tede United Brothers from the SAB Regional League to win a place among the country’s elite sides.

The team plays in Komani, formerly Queenstown, and has an enthusiastic following that will be dreaming of playing one of the country’s big guns.

Amavarara chairperson Lusapho Mzwakali has hailed their progression as an opportunity to showcase their quality on the national stage.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the talent we have. It is a first for the region and my boys will make our supporters proud,” he told reporters.

“When it comes to losing, there are no holy cows in soccer. Whether a team is wearing yellow, gold or black we will prove them fallible.”

The club plays at the Dumpy Adams Sports Ground, but it is likely that they will have to move games to a venue that meets Premier Soccer League standards should they be drawn at home.

“Depending on the team we draw, we are prepared to travel to any place – East London, Port Elizabeth or Cradock,” Mzwakali said.

The team is coached by Thomas Tshabalala and was formed in 1988.
