The venue for the match between Cape Town City and Kaizer Chiefs has been announced, as both teams will be out to try and remain unbeaten this season.
City are scheduled to host Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match next Tuesday, but there has been uncertainty over the venue due to Cape Town Stadium’s unavailability for the team’s previous matches this season.
On Wednesday morning, the Mother City club announced that the club and the the PSL would be conducting a final pitch inspection at the Cape Town Stadium before confirming the venue for the Chiefs match.
The Citizens have now confirmed that their high profile match against Amakhosi will be played at Newlands Stadium.
City played their first home match of the season against Stellenbosch FC at Athlone Stadium, while the MTN8 quarter-final match against Polokwane City took place at Newlands Stadium, as Athlone hosted the GladAfrica Championship fixture between Ajax Cape Town and Free State Stars.
John Comitis – the chairman of City, went on an all-out outburst prior to his club’s first match of the season and accusing Cape Town Stadium management of ‘another negligent and careless undermining of football in Cape Town.’
Both City and Chiefs are unbeaten in their league matches thus far this season, with Amakhosi aiming to extend their unbeaten to three matches, while City aims for its fourth.
