They were still seeking help from Fifa to prove their case that they were innocent in using controversial signing Tendai Ndoro.
Using Ndoro has effectively cemented Ajax's relegation to the NFD. Here's how South African football followers reacted on Twitter.
Am I surprised by the #NdoroGate & Ajax Cape Town issue?— Steve Not Komphela (@BigWordKomphela) July 26, 2018
Look Rob, there is no goat that gets sold with a smile on its face. But no matter how upset it becomes, the frown on its face will not stop it from being taken to the market.

Ajax have just withdrawn their interdict for the league to start as scheduled #Ndorogate— Sazi Hadebe (@HadebeSazieso) July 26, 2018
Something is fishy with this Ajax Cape Town matter #NdoroGate— Garvey (@iAmKingducer) July 26, 2018
#NdoroGate I’m really confused by Ajax’s double withdrawal.— Carl Lewis (@Carl_LewisZA) July 26, 2018
