Cape Town - Cape Town City FC boss John Comitis has cleared the air regarding the naming rights of the club.

Sport24 reported that a dispute had broken out regarding the naming rights of the recently renamed football club.

During the off-season, Comitis purchased Mpumalanga Black Aces and moved the club to the Western Cape.

At a press conference held at the Hellenic FC clubhouse, Comitis was asked whether the allegations brought up would be taken any further.

"I think people that know me, will know that I do things by the book," Comitis said.

"We've checked the entire legality of the trademark and it was available to be registered.

"Everything was approved by the PSL and went through a procedure.

"That is why we are sitting here today talking about the future of Cape Town City.

"If this is another matter on the table, there's only one person talking about that," Comitis concluded.

Meanwhile, City have also unveiled 11 new signings ahead of the 2016/17 season.

They begin life in the Absa Premiership against Polokwane City at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday, August 23.

Kick-Off is at 19:30.
