Chiefs To Face Ajax At Athlone Stadium
Much more drama has accompanied the build up to Ajax Cape Town vs Kaizer Chiefs than is the custom for a regular league encounter.
After much back and forth, Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that the game will be hosted at Athlone Stadium.
Here is a timeline of events: firstly, the game had to be moved from Cape Town Stadium because of a clash of dates with a music festival. Secondly, Ajax resisted the move to Athlone Stadium as SAPS and Disaster Management advised the venue was not safe to host an event of such magnitude.
The solution proposed by Ajax Cape Town was to move the game to Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. However, it has now been confirmed on the Amakhosi's official website that the game will be hosted at Athlone Stadium. Ajax are yet to confirm the news.
“Kaizer Chiefs will take on Ajax Cape Town in an Absa Premiership match on Saturday, 25 February at Cape Town’s Athlone Stadium. Kick off is at 20:15. Match tickets will be sold at Computicket and Shopright/Checkers nationwide for R60,” read a statement on Chiefs' official website.
