Cape Town City Go to Newlands

16 Aug 2019

Cape Town City have moved their MTN8 quarter-final clash against Polokwane City to Newlands Rugby Stadium.
City, the defending champions of the competition, were left with no other choice after both local soccer venues – Cape Town Stadium and Athlone Stadium – were unavailable.
The Cape Town Stadium pitch is not yet ready for football, while Athlone is the venue for Ajax Cape Town’s opening First Division match against Free State Stars.
City boss John Comitis had tried to get Ajax to switch their match to Sunday, but he got no joy from the neighbours.
As a result, the Cape side, which was established in 2016, will play their first ever game at the iconic rugby venue in Newlands.
