Ajax CT to tackle two Euro clubs



Ajax Cape Town are to play Swiss club side Grasshoppers Zurich in late January and Norwegian club Viking Stavanger in the Mother City on February 2 in friendly matches.

Both clubs are to train in the Mother City during their respective season breaks and to face Ajax in warm-up games.

It also serves as a good opportunity for Ajax as they prepare for the second half of the Premier Soccer League season, which starts in mid-February.

Grasshoppers, who have gone into the break in Switzerland handily placed at the top of their league standings, will be in Cape Town from January 18-30 for an extensive camp of matches and training.

Their squad includes current Swiss internationals Izet Hajrovic and Nassim Ben Khalifa.

Viking, who had two players named this weekend by Norway in their squad for their trip to South Africa at the start of January, go to the Cape to prepare for their new season,

The two Viking players in the national squad are goalkeeper Rune Almenning Jarstein and midfielder Yann-Erik de Lanlay, who will stay after the Norway trip to join up with their club mates.
