“We have resolved as the executive of the Free State provincial government to change the name of Goble Park Stadium to the Mike Mokoena Stadium"

“So next year when you come here and you make your way to Goble Park – you will be saying ‘we are going to the Mike Mokoena Stadium’. Of course, the necessary processes will be followed. Look, I swear, this one is going to happen."

"We have also checked who Goble was, we are not fighting anyone – it’s just a name from overseas and it means nothing to anybody. So indeed we were just waiting Bra Mike to take over. That Goble, will be Mike Mokoena Stadium. Long live the spirit of Bra Mike, long live.” -Sisi Ntombela
