Cape Town City have partnered with the CTICC Vaccination Centre of Hope in an effort to urge footballers and the community at large to get vaccinated.
‘The Citizens’ players and staff received their doze of the Covid-19 vaccine at the weekend.
Chairperson John Comitis said nine of the 29 players had contracted Covid-19 and the club supports the initiative to get vaccinated.
“We’re out here just to show the public and to tell everybody out there and especially our fans, we need you back. We need our country to come back to normality. We want full stadiums again, and we can’t do it without you,” said Comitis.
“So we put our hands up, the players have put their hands up and they’ve said: ‘We’re going to show you that this is safe, this is the right thing to do’. It’s a step in the right direction for the recovery of our country.”
CT City Social Captain Mduduzi Mdantsane said: “It’s very important to get the vaccine just to get our fans back into the stadiums.
“We can’t do it without them, and together we can bring our country back to normality.”
