So, after the fiasco of Cape Town City struggling to get a home stadium for a fixture, now neighbours Ajax Cape Town's got the same problem

What's happening in Cape Town? Here's a statement from Ajax Cape Town's official site:

"It is with great regret that due to matters beyond our control we as Ajax Cape Town, the premier club in the Mother City, have to move our upcoming home game against Chippa United – scheduled for Saturday 09 December 2017 – to Bidvest Stadium, in Johannesburg.

"The Athlone Stadium authorities have suspended football activities at the facility until further notes & due to the upcoming Sevens Tournament at the iconic Cape Town Stadium – set to take place on 09 & 10 December 2017 – we have been forced to take our home match elsewhere.

"As one can imagine, this is a far from ideal situation and we want to take this opportunity to apologize to the #UrbanWarriors faithful.

"We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Bidvest Wits and Wits University for availing their ground at the eleventh hour for our use. It is highly appreciated.

"Ajax Cape Town would also like to thank the Athlone municipality who went out of their way to accommodate our recent clash against AmaZulu, during the severe drought which has affected millions of people across the Western Cape region.

"Thank you to the fans and the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for all your understanding, and apologies once more for any inconvenience caused."
