Chiefs were leading the race in the PSL and the club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season.

Some of the special plans include a fixture against an unnamed famous club, but those plans have had to be delayed.

Motaung added, "We have to be responsible. As much as it is our 50th anniversary we'd like to celebrate 50 more years, so it's important we understand that all plans have to be put on hold until things are normalised."
