Comitis Reveals why CT City Went to FNB Stadium after Chiefs Stated they will not Honour their Game

The chairman of Cape Town City John Comitis has revealed why his side went to FNB Stadium after Kaizer Chiefs stated that they will not honour the fixture.

On Saturday the Citizens went to FNB Stadium in honour of their DStv premiership clash against Amakhosi.

However the team found the stadium locked and were unable to get inside and they had to do everything else in their team bus.

This comes after Amakhosi confirmed prior to the game that the club will not honour the game after they were hit by Covid-19 outbreak.

Speaking to the media Comitis said they went to FNB Stadium because they did not receive a message from the league that the game will not go ahead.

Comitis also felt sorry for what has happened to Amakhosi with claims that nobody underestimate what has happened to the club.

The chairman added that they also have experienced what Chiefs is currently experiencing where they had to leave two or three players behind because they tested positive to the virus.

He added that they cannot shut down the league because of the pandemic because they have fought hard to get the games going.

"The rules are very clear, though. Covid-19 cannot and will not be used as excessive circumstances," he said.
