CLUB HISTORY

Cape Town Spurs F.C. (formerly known as Ajax Cape Town) is a South African professional football club based in Parow in the city of Cape Town that plays in the National First Division. Dutch Eredivisie club AFC Ajax was their parent club and majority shareholder after a merger of both Cape Town Spurs and Seven Stars in January 1999 until selling its shares in September 2020.

Cape Town Spurs competed in the NPSL from 1971 until 1984, and the NSL from 1985 to 1996, winning the championship in the final season, before the establishment of the South African Premier Division that same year. The club also won the Bob Save Super Bowl that year.

In July 2013, it was announced that the Comitis brothers, longtime partners and shareholders with the Efstathiou brothers, had sold their shares to the Efstathiou family. Ari Efstathiou was announced as the new chairman.

In 2020, they ended their association with Dutch club AFC Ajax, with Cape Town Stars acquiring full control of the club, and they subsequently renamed to Cape Town Spurs.
