Cape Town - Cape Town City boss John Comitis has revealed he wants his side to dominate Kaizer Chiefs when it comes to the size of the club's support base at home.

Comitis formed City before the start of 2016/17 after buying Mpumalanga Black Aces' franchise, and has ambitious plans to establish the Citizens as a force in the Premiership.

The Eric Tinkler-coached outfit have enjoyed a good start to life in the South African top flight, having already beaten the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Chiefs in the league and Cup competitions.

With that said, Comitis has expressed his determination to grow the team's support base to levels that rival both the Glamour Boys, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

"I want to have my own stadium and I want to fill it with blue and gold. I want scarves, caps and jerseys. When we play Chiefs, I want 1000 Chiefs fans in one corner and for them to behave themselves," he told Soccer Laduma.

"We're always at the mercy of big two or three clubs in the country, but we welcome them and appreciate the revenue that they generate at the gates. However, we want City to have Cape Town supporters."

Meanwhile, Cape Town City face Bloemfontein Celtic at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday in an Absa Premiership clash.

Phunya Sele Sele will be hoping to get one over Tinkler's charges after City defeated the Free State side in the Telkom Knockout.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
