CT City Make Important Announcement

Cape Town City have announced that there will free entry for their final home game of 2023/24 – with the tickets being funded by the players.

The Citizens have only won one of their last 13 games across all competitions – a 2-0 victory over Moroka Swallows last week.

In the league, they have won just one of their 12 games in 2024, a run that saw them drop down from second seventh.

However, with 39 points they are still within touching distance of a top-four finish, sitting three points behind Sekhukhune United with two games left. But they also haven’t fully secured a Top-8 finish and will need points in their final home game against Richards Bay.

As a consequence of the poor run, club chairman John Comitis announced free entry for the clash against the Natal Richboyz.

“Hi Citizens, I want to take this opportunity to thank all the fans out there for having supported this club for the years that have gone by, but especially the season despite of the situation we find ourselves in today,” he said in a video message.

“We turned the corner in 2023 as number two on the log, thinking that we’re going to have a strong finish into the end of the season, and disappointingly, we’ve gone almost completely without a win – one win in 11 games.

“That’s not acceptable by any standards of this club. The fans need to be applauded for continuing to support this club. Despite of this form.

“Everybody’s under pressure here, I can assure you, but the most important is that we’ve had a meeting with discuss with the players. And as a token of appreciation to the fans and the ongoing support, the players have decided to fund your tickets effectively.

“So our home game, our last home game is completely free. And it’s a thank you in a token of appreciation to our loyal fans. And that means that you need to go get your ticket from TicketPro online, or either at the office at Green Marketplace. There’s going to be limited tickets available.

“We’d like you to still support us in the last game. Hopefully we have a strong finish. We finish in the top four or five not the best of our seasons, but I can promise you, a lot of things are getting planned for the new season and hopefully we’ll see you at the game against Richards Bay.

“Thank you.”
