Bloem Celtic's reserves set to face EPL giants in London

MultiChoice Diski Challenge champions from last season, Bloemfontein Celtic, are set to face the reserves of West Ham United and Fulham in London.

Siwelele's second string have jetted out to the United Kingdom on a 10-day tour having won the trip after securing the MDC title in 2017/18.

Also on the itinerary for Celtic in England is to watch Arsenal play Rennes in a Europa League contest at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners trail 3-1 from the first leg of their Round of 16 tie.

During their stay in the English capital, Celtic then face West Ham and Fulham with a chance to make a small piece of history in African football.

During the clash against the two EPL giants, Video Assistant Referee will be used meaning the South African side could be the first African team to really experience the technology.

In addition, another high point of the visit overseas will be with Arsenal legend Ian Wright, who is set to give a motivational talk as a part of the experience.

Wright is the English side's second all-time leading goal-scorer on 185 strikes - a mark only bettered by the legendary France forward Thierry Henry who managed 228 goals.
