Ajax to return to Cape Town Stadium

Favourable grass-growing conditions, plus some expert love and care by the Cape Town Stadium groundstaff means that despite previous reports to the contrary, Ajax Cape Town’s final game of the season will be staged at the Mother City’s World Cup venue:

Ajax Cape Town is returning to Cape Town Stadium for their last game of season against Maritzburg United on May 21, 2011.
The last game of the season for Ajax Cape Town is certainly going to be the most important game played in Cape Town since the semi-final of the 2010 World Cup.
Local support for Ajax Cape Town is vital to provide the final surge across the finish line. We urge the City and the people of Cape Town to get behind the Urban Warriors as they strive to bring the PSL Championship trophy home.

After a mixed response to their previous games at the venue, i, they’re putting on a Football Festival in order to pull the crowds in:

Ajax is planning a major soccer feast at the Cape Town Stadium when they play Maritzburg United.

The Urban Warriors are making 40 000 seats available to the people of Cape Town to ensure that everyone have an opportunity to witness Ajax Cape Town winning their first ABSA Premiership League title in their history.

Shooz Mekuto the Ajax PRO said, “I am very excited with the developments ahead of our last PSL fixture at the Cape Town Stadium for the current season. I am inviting all the people of Cape Town to come a watch history unfold when Ajax Cape Town lift the ABSA Premiership trophy for the first time.”

Shooz may be confident, but Maritzburg United will be no pushover in a game which Ajax have to win to be sure of claiming the title. “The Team of Choice” beat high-flying Mamelodi Sunclowns on their last outing.
Still, that’s all the more reason for locals to come out and support the Urban Warriors next Saturday. The city is making the Fan Walk and the Park & Ride facilities available to supporters and (with the right result) it should be a great day for Cape Town football.
I will, of course, be there: if you want to say hi, I’ll be the tall, good-looking bloke in red and white.

Tickets are now on sale from everyone’s favourite online outlet, Computicket and are priced at R40, R60 and R80.

One thought on “Ajax to return to Cape Town Stadium

  1. I assume that it’s on TV, for those that will be too knackered to drive 40km….
