A LARGE crowd of fans gath­ered out­side the Cape Town City Hall to show their sup­port for Cape Town City FC in a ticker-tape pa­rade or­gan­ised by the mayor.

Cape Town City FC won the MTN8 Cham­pi­onship on Satur­day at Moses Mab­hida Sta­dium in Dur­ban.

The team and coach ar­rived on an open-top red bus with an MC ad­dress­ing the fans. Mayor Pa­tri­cia de Lille for­mally paid tribute to the team.

She also ex­pressed her grat­i­tude to the sup­port­ers who spur on the team to per­form their best and turn out to watch them play.

“We are so proud of our team and for such a young team… It’s only hard work that can make you a win­ner, and we must take the ex­am­ple of Cape Town City FC to work hard in our city,” said De Lille.

It’s the first tro­phy coach Benni McCarthy has won since be­ing appointed as the Cape Town City FC head coach. |
