Township Rollers are at loggerheads with public transport operator, AT&T Monnakgotla over the transportation of supporters to South Africa for the team’s CAF Champions League match against Kaizer Chiefs.

Rollers’ spokesperson, Bafana Phempheretlhe Pheto has faulted Monnakgotla for using the club’s logo and players in promotional materials to lure fans to use the company’s buses to travel to South Africa for the match. He said they have made arrangements with Mahube Express, and not Monnakgotla to transport supporters. He said the two companies were invited to submit their proposals and Rollers management chose Mahube. Pheto said Rollers’ legal expert is handling the matter with Monnakgotla.

Efforts to get a comment from Monnakgotla management were futile at press time as they were said to be engaged in a meeting.
