Jomo Cosmos supporters are in for a super treat come August 28 when the team kicks off its National First Division (NFD) campaign with an explosive home fixture against FC Cape Town.
The day’s event at Olen Park Stadium is virtually a triple header as it also commemorates Women’s month, with the extra attraction of Cosmos Legends reenacting their sublime skills of old.
According to Ezenkosi boss, Jomo Sono, a dinner party has been organized to honour the team’s supporters who stood by the team through thick and thin, and to offer them a platform to mingle with the players.
“We are throwing the gates wide open for our women on this occasion, because it’s their month, but even more significantly, we want to use the opportunity to thank our supporters for always standing behind the team.
“Hopefully, with their unflinching support and goodwill, we’ll achieve the ultimate success by gaining promotion to the PSL at the end of the campaign,” said Sono as he looked forward with optimism to a rewarding season.
Two ladies teams have been penciled down to kick-start the day’s activities with a curtain-raiser at 11h00, while Jomo Cosmos Legends (to be marshaled by Bamuza “Scara” Sono), take to the field against Daly Sports in a novelty game kicking off at 12h30.
That game precedes the main event of the day, which sees Jomo Cosmos senior team locking horns with FC Cape Town.
