Majavu said City will learn their fate by no later than Tuesday, 18 January 2022, and that the sanction will be communicated to the public.

CAPE TOWN CITY TO BE SANCTIONED NEXT WEEK

“I can confirm that Cape Town City football was duly charged and appeared before the DC earlier today (Wednesday). 

The charges emanated from a protest which was lodged by Maritzburg United Football Club, in relation to a fixture that was played in the absence of the responded club being in possession of the requisite players cards.

The matter proceeded today and was almost finalised. The responded club, which is Cape Town City, pleaded guilty as charged and were duly convicted.

“Submissions with regard to the appropriate sanction were also made by all relvant parties and in that regard, the final sanction is reserved by the disciplinary committee.

The indication is that a sanction would be received by no later than next week Tuesday. As soon as it’s available, I will communicate it accordingly.”
