The City of Cape Town announced the details for the first-ever Cape Town Cup soccer tournament last week. The Mother City will help host team Ajax Cape Town welcome Portuguese team Sporting Clube de Portugal, Crystal Palace from England and Pretoria-based SuperSport United.

Set to take place at the iconic Cape Town Stadium on Friday 24 and Sunday 26 July, the tickets will be available from Compu­ticket from 21 June.

A draw was done to determine that the first game on Friday 24 July, which kicks off at 17:45, will see Crystal Palace take on SuperSport United, followed by Sporting Clube de Portugal and Ajax Cape Town going head-to-head at 20:15 in the second match of the evening.

Sunday’s action will start at 13:00, with the losing team of Friday’s first match challenging the losing team of the second match.

The final, featuring both winners from the games played on Friday, will take place at 15:30.

There will be no extra match time, so if there is a stalemate after regulation time, a penalty shootout will decide the champion.

“The City of Cape Town is delighted to host the inaugural Cape Town Cup in our beautiful city. We look forward to welcoming the teams and their many fans,” says Garreth Bloor, mayoral committee member for tourism, events and economic development, in a statement.

“Our support for the tournament is part of the City’s strategy to position Cape Town as the events capital of Africa. Events play a pivotal role in generating visitor expenditure and growing our local economy. In addition, soccer is a unifying sport and events like these bring residents from all walks of life together.

“We call on Capetonians to come out in their numbers to support the event.”

With ticket prices ranging from R200 to R400 for the double matches on both Friday and Sunday, host team Ajax Cape Town is looking forward to die-hard soccer fans attending in their thousands.
