Five soccer teams from Cape Town are in action this weekend when the competition in the National Football Division (NFD) kicks off. The teams are Milano United from Grassy Park, Cape Umoya United from Cape Town, Ubuntu Cape Town (formerly known as FC Cape Town) from Athlone, Stellenbosch, and Ajax Cape Town from Parow.

Ajax was relegated from the Premier Soccer League, and with an appeal still pending on whether they will be allowed back into the PSL, despite matches already being played, they opted to compete this season in the NFD.

Ubuntu was the “giant slayer” last year in the Nedbank Cup, a competition where sixteen teams besides the PSL teams compete against one another. They dispatched Jomo Cosmos, AmaZulu and Polokwane City before stumbling against Free State Stars in the quarter-finals of the competition. This success is due to coach Casey Prince, and the team hopes to repeat this achievement in the NFD.

Waseem Isaacs from Bonteheuwel and a former player of FC Cape Town is one of the players on whom the team will depend this season. He is a veteran and with his experience the young players around him will thrive.

Cape Umoyo, a Cape Town-based consortium with Roger de Sa, bought Platinum Stars and their league status in February this year. De Sa is co-owner of the club and a former coach of Ajax and Orlando Pirates.

Due to the pitch at Athlone Stadium being relaid, all home matches of the Cape Town sides will be played at Cape Town Stadium. This means that they share the stadium with Cape Town City.

. Cape Town City is through to the semi-finals of the MTN 8 and will play against Kaizer Chiefs. The Citizens beat Maritzburg United on Sunday 12 August by 1-0, thanks to Keenan Cupido’s header.

.The NFD fixtures for the weekend are:

Saturday 18 August: Stellenbosch vs Royal Eagles at Chatsworth Stadium in Durban:

Sunday 19 August: Ajax vs Jomo Cosmos at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa;

Cape Umoyo United vs TS Galaxy at Kameelrivier Stadium in Mpumalanga;

Ubuntu Cape Town vs Richards Bay at uMhlathuze Sports Complex in Richards Bay.V
