Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town CEO Ari Efstathiou is convinced Kaizer Chiefs have ulterior motives to why they moved their PSL fixtures to Cape Town.

According to KickOff, Efstathiou has come out saying that the Soweto giants have other motivating factors to why they moved their fixtures to Cape Town Stadium, which was approved by the City of Cape Town.

“The one question that is pertinent to ask is: If you are wanting to win the League - any team - don’t you want to play most of your home games at home and get all your points?” he says.

“So why would Chiefs take nine points and go play them in an area where they don’t have that good results?

“There’s got to be some motivating factor. There need to be some answers - they keep on saying it’s not financial, so then what is it? Political? I don’t know what it is.”

Amakhosi are set to play three of their home games at Cape Town Stadium starting with a fixture Bidvest Wits on December 19, 2015.

The remaining two fixtures will be played in 2016 against Platinum Stars on January 24 and SuperSport United on February 20.
