No, it's a much more complicated issue that's being debated among soccer club, Cape Town City, rugby team The Stormers and the City of Cape Town's municipality.
Here's how Twitter discussed Cape Town City boss John Comitis' frustrations.
“I keep telling them how important football is for the city, how important @CapeTownCityFC is for the players and thousands of footballers in Cape Town” pic.twitter.com/WYVX3A7pzX — DiskiStyle (@DiskiStyle) December 1, 2017
#CityofCapeTown - We've had teams working around the clock trying to get Athlone ready but John Comitis wasn't happy with its state and asked us if they can use Newlands for their match and Rugby said no cos their field is under works @Power987Sport — Tracksuit (@ThabisoMosia) December 1, 2017
Heard from someone who work at the rugby stadium John Comitis was at Newlands last week to ask them to play games there. But the Western Province rugby union refused them. — Marlon Rojo (@marlonthuynsma_) November 27, 2017
I’m thinking of moving Cape Town City to Durban and renaming it Durban City FC, says John Comitis — Kabelo KaB-Zar Maqhu (@IAM_KaBZar) December 1, 2017
THIS IS MORE LIKE IT! "Give me a piece of land. I can build my own @CapeTownCityFC stadium. I'll do it myself so that I don't have to ask them for discounted rates for water and so forth. But they have to facilitate it, they can't ignore it” JOHN COMITIS — Neal Collins (@nealcol) December 1, 2017

“Soon rugby is going to want to take over Cape Town Stadium & they will want us to cooperate, but when we want to play soccer at Newlands they tell us they're fixing their field” pic.twitter.com/3sMoKoMp7c
#JohnComitis - There's nothing happening at Newlands, they are just doing the field for next season. If they knew there was Sevens at CT Stadium, why couldn't the work at Newlands happen next year... @CapeTownCityFC @Power987Sport — Tracksuit (@ThabisoMosia) December 1, 2017
#JohnComitis - We also have problems with training venues. We train on a little pitch, in the middle of a little suburb, in the middle of nowhere called Sunningdale. We train on an amateur club's pitch! @Power987Sport @CapeTownCityFC — Tracksuit (@ThabisoMosia) December 1, 2017
