Johannesburg - Stadium Management South Africa (SMSA) has announced that Orlando Stadium will host Bafana Bafana's international friendly against Zimbabwe on 10 September.
Kickoff for the match is at 20:30.
Polokwane City had originally expressed interest in hosting Cosafa’s biggest derby but pulled out, Safa said in a statement.
King Zwelithini in Durban and Atteridgeville’s Lucas Moripe came in for
reckoning, Bafana coach Gordon Igesund said Orlando Stadium would
provide an ideal atmosphere for the duel.
"I am happy that the
match will take place at one of the country’s home of soccer, and
playing Zimbabwe always brings the best out of my players," Igesund
