Chiefs Worth Nearly R100 Million More Than City

Tonight's MTN8 fixture between Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City is a David and Goliath battle on paper, with the Glamour Boys being worth substantially more than their adversaries. Can you believe it?

The Mother City outfit officially debuted in the Absa Premiership against Polokwane City on Tuesday evening, and claimed their first victory since being transformed from Mpumalanga Black Aces into Cape Town City. 

They will, however, have a tougher task ahead of them in tonight's fixture when they take on one of South Africa's oldest and biggest clubs in the MTN8 quarterfinals.

Despite Chiefs' disappointing form, they stand head and shoulders above City in terms of finances, history, and net worth. It is the latter that is of particular interest today…

Did you know that Amakhosi's total market value is said to sit at about R160.2 million. This is based on the players' market values as well as the club's history, while City are said to be worth R93 million less than their rivals.

These figures, of course, don't carry much weight when the players step out on to the field at Cape Town Stadium, but it just goes to show how different two teams are. 

Do you think City can stun Chiefs tonight?
