Western Cape Football Clubs - Cape Town City Football Club - Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
Capetonians have finally received a team that they can truly call their own. A team of the city, by the city: Cape Town City FC became a reality after local businessman John Comitis purchased Mpumalanga Black Aces and relocated the team to the Mother City. The team’s aim is to be truly based within the community of Cape Town, with not only support- but input and feedback- from the fan base being of paramount importance to the club’s owners and administrators. As a new, disruptive force on the local football scene, we do things differently, consistently involving our fans from all over Cape Town in the process from day one. As an inclusive club with roots in Nyanga, the Flats and the City Centre, this gives us a great opportunity to have a supporter base that is truly representative of Cape Town and the rich football culture of the City. Friday Night Football used to be a tradition in the Cape and Cape Town City FC aims to resurrect that tradition by playing home games on a Friday night, right in the heart of the City at the iconic Cape Town Stadium. Easily reachable on MyCiti bus specials and for people who work around the City Centre - fans can enjoy a drink after work and then walk to the stadium along the 2010 FIFA World Cup FanWalk. This is a ritual that Cape Town City FC believes will truly unite the city in football. This is a club with a difference - one that works closely with the City of Cape Town and the wider communities to truly engage and create a football team as unique and diverse as the city it calls home.
