Possible Earnings Increase For Cape Town City FC As They Start Their 2019/2020 PSL Season

Exciting season ahead for the city's premier soccer team

Last Update: 2 August 2019

Cape Town City, winners of the 2018 MTN 8 title, a knockout competition between the top eight PSL clubs, have another opportunity to pick up similar silverware after finishing in fourth place last season.

"The Citizens", who bagged the R8 million MTN cheque on offer, open their 2019-20 league campaign on 3 August away to Baroka FC before hosting Polokwane City in the 2019 MTN8 quarter-finals a week later.

Cape Town City's new home kit

City also received a R2 million league prize money from the PSL hierarchy but have been uplifted by the news of a substantial overall increase in possible earnings, which all 16 top-flight outfits will enjoy - depending on their respective log positions this campaign.

Cape Town City's new away kit

For example, the 2019-20 PSL champions are set to receive a cool R15 million, the runners-up half that amount, while 3rd and 4th placings fall into the R3.75 million and 2.5 million brackets respectively.   

THE PLAYERS
Following the retirement of the legendary 36-year-old Teko Modise, the club’s popular head coach, Benni McCarthy, has added a number of key players, including two former Ajax Cape Town men, Abbubaker Mobara and Tashreeq Morris. 

The versatile Mobara can play both as a defender and midfielder, while Morris, a striker, is expected to be back to his best under the tutorage of Bafana Bafana’s all-time goal grabber.

Although McCarthy’s won the MTN 8 as both a player and coach, there’s still lots of work on his plate if he wants to emulate the original Cape Town City, who won 12 trophies in 7 years.

(WATCH) A TEAM WITH SPIRIT, PASSION, STRONG CULTURE
Cape Town City FC's hard work and determination have paved the way for them to become champions against the odds. This is a behind-the-scenes look at what makes them who they are.
