Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy has spoken out after the City of Cape Town refused to let the team play a home match in their home stadium, forcing the match to be moved to Durban.
The 40-year-old mentor expressed his disappointment with how the stadium becomes unavailable for football matches, but for other events the venue is always opened.
Supporters have reacted to McCarthy's views, and many shared the same sentiments.
"I've seen this one coming. Cape Town Stadium exists thanks to the 2010 World Cup but we're still yet to watch a cup final at the White Elephant and Moses Mabhida is close to 10 finals hosted, sucks." – i_skhura73
"Well said by Benni. I have always been saying that Cape Town is another country in South Africa. There we go!" – firstname.lastname@example.org
"It's sad indeed... Your home game becomes an away one." – Shillos10
"The same happens at Loftus Versveld Stadium in Tshwane. At one point, Mamelodi Sundowns had to push SuperSport United out of the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, because Loftus was reserved for a while to accommodate rugby. Football fans and clubs aren't given respect in South Africa." – Matome_Kay
