SA to host Champions League
Mumbai - The Airtel Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) Governing Council has today announced that this year's tournament will be held in South Africa from September 10 - 26.
The Governing Council has accepted Cricket South Africa's offer to host the tournament, with the venues and competing teams for the second edition of the world's premier domestic Twenty20 competition to be finalized in the coming weeks.
Airtel Champions League Twenty20 Chairman, Lalit Modi, said:
"South Africa is considered an ideal CLT20 host after successfully staging the Indian Premier League and ICC World Twenty20 tournaments in recent years, as well as the strong support shown for its domestic Pro20 Series competition."
The CLT20 Governing Council is scheduled to meet in May to finalise the details for the tournament.
It comprises the three founding member boards of the tournament, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket Australia (CA) and Cricket South Africa (CSA).
