FOOTBALL AND RUGBY ACTION IN CAPE TOWN

Cape Town is in for an action-packed long weekend of rugby and football at the Mother City’s iconic stadiums.

Cape Town City gets the ball rolling on Saturday afternoon in a DSTV Premiership clash against Kaizer Chiefs at Athlone Stadium.

City is currently fifth on the PSL table and looking to strengthen its chances of a place in the CAF competition positions with a win on Saturday.

Gates for the game open at 12:30 for a 15:30 kick off.

Tickets for the game are available at various TicketPro outlets across the city.

DHL STORMERS vs ULSTER

 

Later on Saturday, the DHL Stormers will be going for a second straight win in the United Rugby Championship when they meet Irish side Ulster at DHL Stadium.

Wing Leolin Zas, whose two tries helped down Edinburgh last week, is aware of the magnitude of the game.

In 2022, the Stormers needed a last minute Manie Libbok touchline conversion to beat Ulster in the URC semifinal. 

“It’s going to be a tough one,” Zas said.

“We are a team that focuses a lot on ourselves and we are trying to get right the things that we want to do. We aren’t going to look too much into Ulster, but instead at our opportunities and trying to finish them. Saying that, Ulster is a quality team and deserve plenty of credit.”

Among Ulster’s ranks is former DHL Stormers captain Steven Kitshoff, who will return to Cape Town for the first time since taking up the move to Ireland after the 2023 World Cup.

Gates for the game open two hours before kick-off which is at 19:15.

Ticket holders are encouraged to utilise the park and ride system where they park their vehicles in the city centre and take the free MyCiTi shuttle to the stadium.

More details on the shuttle are available on the MyCiTi website.

CAPE TOWN SPURS vs MOROKA SWALLOWS

 

On Sunday, Cape Town Spurs will go up against Moroka Swallows at Athlone Stadium.

Spurs go into the game on a good run of form, having collected 8 out of 12 points from their last four games in a bit to avoid relegation.

Coach Ernst Middendorp has cautioned his team to keep their feet on the ground as other relegation-threatened clubs are also focused on the same task.

“We need to remain humble, work hard, and we will,” Middendorp said.

Kick-off is at 15:30 with gates opening at 14:30.

Tickets for the game are available at Ticketpro.
