Venue switch for Wednesday’s COSAFA Cup clashes

Wednesday’s matches in the COSAFA Cup have been switched to the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane from Seshego, the organisers announced.

It comes after the lighting for Tuesday’s matches, which were played at the Seshego Stadium, proved inadequate for the purpose of television transmission.

There was also a brief period when one of the floodlights went out and COSAFA cannot risk such happening again for an international tournament of this stature.

The organisers issued a sincere apology to the residents of Seshego, who had enthusiastically embraced the tournament on Tuesday night when two matches in Group A were played there. They were also thanked for their hospitality.

A further announcement on plans for Thursday and Friday’s last round of group games will be made later.
