Cape Derby Friendly Rescheduled
Cape Town City Vs Ajax Cape Town Friendly Rescheduled
The pre-season friendly encounter between Cape Town City and Ajax Cape Town scheduled to take place today, August 03, has been rescheduled for a later date yet to be confirmed.
The two cape sides were set to lock horns in a friendly encounter for the first time following their previous 2016/17 Absa Premiership fixture which took place in February this year, however, it has since been called off for today after the clubs have been informed of the unavailability of both stadiums in Cape Town.
Both Athlone and Cape Town Stadium are currently underway with maintenance and preparations for the upcoming 2017/18 season, where the two stadiums will be home grounds to both City and Ajax.
However, sources have since revealed that the pre-season friendly has been rescheduled to this weekend, with an official date and venue yet to be confirmed by City, as they initially requested for the match to take place.
City will get their 2017/18 campaign underway next week Saturday, August 12, when they lock horns with Polokwane City in the quarter-finals of the 2017 MTN8 competition and indications are that Head Coach Benni McCarthy is eager for one more preparation match before they play hosts to Rise and Shine at the Cape Town Stadium.
