Platinum Stars

Nickname:
Dikwena (The Crocodiles)
Founded:
1998

Platinum Stars have been transformed dramatically over the last decade. They started out with the vision of Johannesburg businessman Larry Brookstone, who sought to rebuild the defunct Highlands Park. 
Their takeover by Royal Bafokeng Holdings means Stars were relocated from Johannesburg to the North West province, where they have taken up residence in a fantastic state-of-the-art training complex at the Bafokeng Sports Campus. 
Last year they finished second in the league, just a point behind winners Kaizer Chiefs, but have since lost coach Cavin Johnson to SuperSport United. 
The club announced their arrival the South African soccer scene in April 2003 when they knocked Orlando Pirates out of the cup in sensational upset and advanced to the quarterfinals. 
They won promotion the same season and have been a regular fixture in the league since. 
Dikwena were the first Telkom Knockout champions in 2006 after a famous win over Ajax Cape Town in the final, but they have struggled to replicate that success in the tournament ever since.
