CAPE TOWN - After hosting English football giants Manchester United in Cape Town over the weekend, City of Cape Town bosses say there is more to come.

Grant Pascoe, the city's mayoral committee member for marketing and events, says they are already in discussion with other European sides about touring South Africa and the Mother City.

Approximately 55,000 fans crammed into Cape Town Stadium on Saturday to watch the 1-1 draw between local side Ajax Cape Town and Manchester United.

Pascoe says they have been approached by several teams about the possibility of visiting Cape Town.

"All discussions are in the early stages right now, we've been speaking to other premier English teams and also some Spanish teams who are interested in coming out here."

Pascoe says a match featuring a select world 11 side is also on the cards.

"We're looking at the world 11 to come and play here in Cape Town, so that we can raise funds for the United Nations Children's Fund."
