Cape Town - Newly joined Absa Premiership (PSL) club Cape Town City FC have unveiled 11 new signings ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Club owner John Comitis, along with coach Eric Tinkler, addressed the media together for the first time since Mpumalanga Black Aces were renamed as Cape Town City.

Comitis and Tinkler have brought in a host of foreign players with Matt Sim (Australia), James Brown (Australia), Renars Rode (Latvia) and Roland Putsche (Austria) all on City's wage bill, leaving just one spot left for a final foreign player.

The former Ajax Cape Town owner is adamant in nurturing Cape Town's talent and has done so with signing 17-year-old Duncan Adonis and former Milano United winger, Ebrahim Seedat.

"I saw something very exciting in Ebi (Seedat)," Comitis said.

"He gave me the whole impression of Brett Evans (Ajax Cape Town left-back)... A mixture between Brett and Jenniker (Aidan)."

City's first competitive match will be against Polokwane City on Tuesday, August 23 at Cape Town Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.

Full list of players unveiled:

Matt Sim
Ebrahim Seedat
