29 May 2018 – Wednesday’s (30 May 2018) matches in the COSAFA Cup have been switched to the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane from Seshego, the organisers have announced.
This comes after the lighting for Tuesday’s (29 May 2018) matches 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 have 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.
A further announcement on plans for Thursday and Friday’s last round of group games will be made later.
