The Sharks (Pty) Ltd have responded to a report in Thursday’s Mercury newspaper that the Sharks board have begun discussions with Durban’s eThekwini Municipality to relocate from the Absa Stadium (King’s Park) to the new Moses Mahbida stadium, which is close to Absa Stadium.

Thekwini Municipality’s head of strategic projects, Julie-May Ellingson, revealed that the Sharks had little choice but to move to the new location.

“We can’t wait any longer.We will start the sale of corporate suites at the new stadium within the next eight weeks and hopefully we will have reached a decision with the Sharks before then,” Ellingson is quoted as saying in the Mercury.

The Sharks (Pty) Ltd responded by issuing the following statement on Thursday: “Following the report that appeared on the front page of the Mercury this morning (Thursday) The Sharks wish to advise that we have had ongoing discussions with the City in regard to the Moses Mahbida Stadium. “

At this point in time the Sharks do not have sufficient information to make an informed decision or even contemplate relocation.

“In any event such a decision will require in depth consultation with all stakeholders which include suiteholders, season ticket holders, sponsors and most importantly the KwaZulu Natal Rugby Union and Sharks equity partner Supersport.”

The statement was issued in their behalf by The Sharks (Pty) Ltd’s CEO Brian van Zyl.
