Bafana to host Mozambique at Mbombela Stadium


BAFANA Bafana will face Mozambique in an international friendly match at Mbombela Stadium on September 11.

The clash will take place in the evening at a time still to be determined.

Tickets will go on sale at Computicket, Checkers and Shoprite outlets this week.

The match will be played four days after Bafana take on five-time World champions Brazil in another international friendly. That encounter will take place on September 7 at the Estadio do Morumbi, the home of Sao Paolo FC.

It is also the football venue for the 2016 Brazil Olympic Games, and has a capacity of just over 67,428.

Kickoff is at 4pm Brazilian time (9pm South African time).

The match is part of a symbolic hand-over from the previous to present hosts of the FIFA World Cup. South Africa hosted the 2010 tournament, while Brazil will host the next edition in 2014.

The last time the two nations met was on June 26 in 2009 in the FIFA Confederations Cup which Brazil won.
