Mpumalanga Black Aces renamed Cape Town City Football Club

AmaZayoni were successfully sold to former Ajax Cape Town co-owner John Comitis earlier this month

Mpumalanga Black Aces have officially been renamed Cape Town City FC, new owner John Comitis announced in a press conference on Wednesday.

The club has since relocated from the Mpumalanga province to the Western Cape. 

Addressing the media, Comitis said Cape Town City FC aim to play attractive football and also bring back the Friday football fever in the Mother City next season.  

"We want to play attractive football, we got a great mix from township Diski players and athletic coloured players," Comitis told reporters. 

"We want to ignite Friday Football fever in the city," he continued. 

The former Ajax Cape Town co-owner confirmed that Muhsin Ertugral picked all the players that were retained by the club.

"All the players we have were Mushin's pick and these are basically the players who delivered fourth place," said Comitis.

Comitis revealed that he has spoken to a few international clubs about partnering but he didn't elaborate further.

Media reports have previously suggested that Cape Town City will partner with Premier League giants Manchester City in the new season. 

"We are ambitious, we have spoken to international clubs about partnering. It depends on the City if they get behind," he added. 

Meanwhile, the new Mother City club also launched their new kit, new logo and new colours colours. Their home colours will be blue and yellow and they will play all their home games at the iconic Cape Town Stadium.
