Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League say they have no problem with Liverpool playing in Cape Town two days after the Nedbank Cup final but the match has yet to be fixed as Ajax officials have gone to ground and are refusing to confirm whether the match is happening or not.
According to the supersport.com website, the league have given the go-ahead for Ajax proposed friendly match with English champions elect to be played on May 18, but more signatures are needed before an official announcement can be made.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) have now approached the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for their permission and although they are waiting on a response from the Cairo-based body, it is expected the answer will be in the positive.
The PSL had blocked a request for a game between the two sides to be played towards the end of last season because the date fell between the end of the league season and the Nedbank Cup final.
But with the Nedbank Cup final bringing down the curtain on the South African season on May 17, no such stumbling blocks exist this year and the league have given the green light.
The City of Cape Town retains a binding agreement with the two sides for the fixture to take place and will reportedly be paid an appearance fee of £1 million (R17.5-million).
Should Liverpool make the journey, it will likely be without their World Cup-bound stars such as Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, English midfielder Steven Gerrard and Ivory Coast veteran Kolo Toure.
