CSA sorry for 'Arfica' blunder

2015-04-22 15:33

Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has apologised for making a spelling error in the logo of the new Africa T20 Cup.

The competition was launched in Johannesburg on Tuesday, but the event turned into embarrassment for CSA when ‘Africa’ was spelt ‘Arfica’ on all logos displayed at the press conference.

It caused somewhat of a stir on social media, with various scribes poking fun at the embattled organisation.

The Africa T20 is a new competition that will see South Africa’s provinces grouped alongside national teams from Zimbabwe, Kenya and Namibia.

CSA apologised for the blunder on its official Twitter account:

The tweet read: (sic) "We apologize for the oversight on the #AfricaT20Cup logo. We’re glad we could provide you with a good (l)arf though…"
