Cape Town City FC will make their bow in the 2016/17 Premier Soccer League season after the new franchise out of the ashes of Mpumalanga Black Aces was launched on Wednesday.

The club‚ owned by John Comitis‚ will make their professional debut with a high-profile MTN8 meeting against Kaizer Chiefs at their Cape Town Stadium base on a date yet to be determined by the PSL.

The club is an ambitious project that seeks to unify 100 grassroots teams that play in the SAFA leagues to feed into their academy that is potentially to be based in Nyanga.

Discussions over the project started with SAFA Western Cape president Norman Arendse last November‚ and culminated in the purchase of Black Aces’ franchise to form a professional team for the grassroots sides to feed into.

“It was clear‚ if you don’t tap into the heart of the guy at the grassroots‚ you cannot succeed at the top. This is a club for the people‚” Comitis said.“It’s about linking the bottom (grassroots) to the top and showing a clear path of how to get there. Any players that are developed through our grassroots affiliates and are sold to‚ for example Portugal‚ those Euros will not just come to Cape Town City‚ but also filter down to grassroots as well. That is in writing.”

One Response to PSL newcomers Cape Town City FC finally launched in the Mother City

  • Watched my first Cape Town City Friday night game as a 10yr old in 1965, when my uncle took my to the match. the team had Reg Smith as Manager and players such as Vic Lovell, Don McKenzie, Leon Kubic, Richard Allen, John Livingston, Denis Cunningham, Billy O’Grady and later under Frank Lord players such as Tommy Claxton, Tony Coleman, Roy Vernon, George Mulhall, John Keirs, Tony Brimacombe, John Sissons, Francis Lee etc. Please bring back the pre match junior curtain raisers WHICH WILL BRING BACK THE FAMILY TO WATCH MATCHES AND BAN THE DAGGA SMOKERS. Having the matches on Fridays again is a brilliant idea but arrange with Golden Arrow to have busses available to the Cape Flats like back in the day.
