'Cape Town City Should Take A Leaf From Highlands Park'

The new season is nearly upon us, and there are many new and exciting things to marvel over as we head into it – there is even a new football club to look forward to, Cape Town City. However, one of our supporters, Jackie04, has raised concerns that they may be in too much of a rush for success, and this search for instant success may be its biggest downfall.

"If I am not wrong, John Comitis was pushed out of Ajax, with a good package, He sits on one of those PSL committees. He has knowledge of running a club, he knows the dos & don'ts of running a PSL club, but my worries are the instant want of running a PSL club – why did he not start at the bottom like everyone else?

"I think he should have bought a First Division team and worked his way around with the ambition of getting promoted either in their first or second season. Get those boys from Ajax that he intends stealing from the junior ranks to play the kind of football that we will recognise the CTC FC brand with, and if the team is for Cape Town people, he should get their trust and build a support base because I can tell he assumes he will have a huge support base.

"There is hunger in Cape football circles. Take a leaf from Highlands in Tembisa, how fantastic they were with their fans while plying their trade in the First Division. Money can buy anything, but I don't see a long stay in the PSL for this CTC FC in the PSL."

Do you think a team has more chance of gaining a support base if it begins in the lower leagues?
