Pretoria – The much-awaited 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) clash between Bafana Bafana and Egypt has been moved from the Cairo international to the Cairo Military Academy Stadium.
According to the Egyptian Football Association, the match will still be played on Sunday, June 5 at 8:30pm South African time.
The 22 0000-seater stadium was one of the six venues used for the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations tournament held in Egypt.
It is situated about 12 kilometers from the Cairo International Stadium in the north-eastern Heliopolis district of Cairo.
The ground was built in 1989 for the use of military teams and students at the military academy.
It accommodated the home games of Al Ahly and Zamalek during the refurbishing of the Cairo International Stadium and occasionally still serves to stage matches of the two rivals. – Nthambeleni Gabara, BuaNews
