That is a fact that Ajax Cape Town likes to use to silence any City banter.
Though, the other fact remains that even in one year Cape Town City managed to build their club so quickly that they've already overtaken Ajax in terms of scope.
The Urban Warriors are mostly about youth development and surviving relegation safely. That mind sound harsh on Ajax, but that's mostly been the case in recent seasons.
On the other hand City's already fighting for the highest honours, and at least hoping to make it in the top four.
So, by all accounts City wants to believe they're the clear favourites. Then that's going to place the pressure on them in the Cape Derby. Can Ajax use that to their advantage?
Ajax has a richer history, but for this Derby their neighbours City are the one's boasting about the past derbies.
Here's a video which Cape Town City wants Ajax to remember, and a Tweet that the Urban Warriors are reminding us of too.
