Ajax Cape Town’s league placements over the years

As we continue to wait for the 2019/20 season to commence amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we take a look back at the club’s league placements over the last two decades.
Since Ajax Cape Town’s inception in 1999, the club has finished within the top four on six occasions.
In our maiden season in South Africa’s top-flight, the club claimed a fourth place finish. Since then, the Urban Warriors have finished a high of 2nd on three different occasions (2003/04, 2007/08 and 2010/11).
Our best season to date was the 2010/11 campaign in which Foppe de Haan’s men came agonisingly close to winning the Absa Premiership title. Ajax Cape Town finished level on 60 points with Orlando Pirates, but missed out on a maiden league crown on goal difference.
Goal difference was also the reason for the club’s fourth-place finish in the National First Division last season. The Urban Warriors finished in what was the club’s first campaign in the division level on points with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhadila, but with an inferior goal difference the club missed out on the play-offs and thus an immediate chance to return to the Premiership.
Ajax Cape Town currently occupy top spot in the GladAfrica Championship standings, seven points ahead of the club’s closest challengers Swallows FC, with six matches remaining.
