John Comitis insists he registered Cape Town City by the book

accreditation revealed on Monday that Soccer Laduma boss Peter du Toit claims to have the naming rights to Cape Town City FC, and was shocked when Comitis unveiled his new club with the same name.

Comitis however insists he did nothing wrong, saying he took all the correct and legal channels in registering the new PSL outfit.

“People who know me know that I do things by the book,” he told reporters. “We’ve checked the entire legality of the trademark; it was available to be registered and we did so.

“Everything was approved by the PSL – it went through a procedure, and that’s why we are sitting here today talking about the future of Cape Town football. It would not be possible if it wasn’t possible.

“If this is another matter on the table, there’s only one person talking about that, as simple as that.”

City open their 2016/17 PSL campaign at Cape Town Stadium against Polokwane City on Tuesday, 23 August.
