Cape Town - 18-times English League champions, Liverpool have confirmed that they will no longer be traveling to Cape Town to play in a one-off friendly against Ajax Cape Town.

The match was originally scheduled to take place on May 21, but the PSL took exception to the proposal due to the date falling within the regular South African soccer season and possibly detracting from the Nedbank Cup final, due to take place on May 25 between Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

A statement released on the club's website reads:

"Liverpool Football Club recently accepted an invitation from the City of Cape Town to play a fixture against Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday, May 21.HAVE YOUR SAY: With Liverpool cancelling their trip, do you think Cape Town will ever be offered another opportunity to host a big international club again?
