South Africa awoke in a state of shock as arguably the upset of the season came very early on. Cape Town City, a team that has existed for only 180 minutes, beat local giants Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 in the opening round of the MTN8. Where does this leave the supporters?
It was encouraging to see a full stadium in Cape Town on Saturday, but the large majority of the supporters in the stands on the day were supporting Kaizer Chiefs, and many went home disappointed.
However, it wasn't only the Chiefs fans who were shocked – it seems Cape Town City's supporters, who are just finding their feet in South African footballing circles, were not expecting the win either. Supporters Club caught up with one of the new boys' fans, Campbell Frost.
"I couldn't believe my eyes. I was just coming to enjoy the spectacle, I wanted to support my team but I just wanted them to do their best, I was not expecting massive things. But when that goal went in, wow…" he said.
"Then I sat in the stands and I thought it was just a fluke, I thought Amakhosi were going to come back and slaughter us, because I have heard of how great a team they were, but then it turns out they did not even look like they wanted to score.
"My team kept them at bay. I'm a very happy supporter this morning. What a great team. How many soccer supporters can claim that their team has never ever lost a single game in their lives? (laughs) We can, Chiefs can't."
What do you make of Chiefs' loss to the new boys?
