IN a bid to ensure they have a successful run in the Vodacom Cup, the EP Kings are set to abandon their policy of playing home matches in outlying areas this year.
EP officials say they will play all their home fixtures at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium because they want players to get accustomed to the venue as their main home ground.
Last year, the Kings played a Free State 15 in Cradock and the Border Bulldogs in Grahamstown during a poor campaign that saw them end fifth on the South Section log.
They returned to Cradock later in the season to play their final warm-up match against the Free State Cheetahs ahead of the Currie Cup.
