Ajax Fan: City Are Just Renting Our Stadium

On Wednesday last week, John Comitis revealed his new team, Cape Town City FC, after he had purchased the former Mpumalanga-based club and moved the players and staff to the Mother City, joining the likes of Ajax Cape Town in the PSL. It was also revealed that the team would be sharing the Cape Town Stadium with the Urban Warriors.

Speaking to Supporters Club, Ajax fan Lesley Devos gave his views on their new competition.

"Firstly, let me make it clear that I am not a fan of Cape Town City FC!" he said.

"We will welcome them here but it won't change the way that I feel towards the club.

"Now they are going to use the Cape Town Stadium, but at the end of the day, it is our home ground and they are just renting it from us."

The soccer-loving city will now have another derby to look forward to, and it could prove to be positive for the football fraternity.

"It is great that we will have a derby again," Devos added.

"Also, looking at the problem that we are continuously having with trying to get our stadiums filled, I think, by having two teams using the same venue, it will result in a positive turnout, especially if the PSL play it cleverly and host double headers."

What are your views on both Ajax and Cape Town City using the same stadium as their home ground?
