Selling Of Clubs Could Affect Cape Town

Cape Town Could Have Fewer NFD Teams

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 23, 2017 10:37 AM

From having five clubs in the National First Division, Cape Town could soon be left with one representative in the second tier of South African football.

With Santos relegated to the ABC Motsepe League at the end of last season, the Mother City is left with four clubs in the NFD, namely, Stellenbosch, Cape Town All Stars, FC Cape Town and Milano.

Of the four clubs, only Stellenbosch seems unlikely to be sold. All the other clubs are reportedly keen to sell their respective NFD statuses, with some having confirmed to be seeking buyers, while others have not officially confirmed the intention of selling. 

FC Cape Town has been linked with a potential sale of ts status to Ubuntu Trust, but the club’s boss, Errol Dicks, has already stated that the team’s franchise has not been sold, as reported in edition 1028 of Soccer Laduma.

Now, Ubuntu is believed to be looking to purchase Milano’s second tier status, after they pulled out of the deal with All Stars.

“Ubuntu cannot make any statement before completion of all the paperwork, including NSL approval, as I wouldn’t like NSL executive members thinking we’re not respecting the proper process,” said the Ubuntu source.

This is a free country brothers anyone at anytime can do as they please and that include selling the status of any team. Remember its a free market economy if you have money use it. That's the way of the free economy. This teams want to sell and somebody got the money and is willing make the deal. Period

This thing of buying league status is wrong and unfair to the players that worked very hard to make it to the top leagues including faithful supporters who support their team. But PSL, NSL turns their back. Sale of status will not only destroy our league but our future footballers

@Qhanya theres a difference between of selling a club and its status. So i guess you mean selling the status is not right, selling a club is fine to someone richer and capable of meeting its financial woes and challenging expenses.

NFD needs the sponsorship, I don't know why NSL is not taking that league seriously, they could sell the games to etv or something
