Cape Town - The City of Cape Town will host a 2014 FIFA Soccer World Cup qualifying match between Bafana Bafana and the Central African Republic next month, the Cape Argus reported on Wednesday.

The match would take place at the Cape Town stadium on March 23.

Mayor Patricia de Lille joked that in a meeting on Tuesday that the city would agree on hosting the game "on condition they [Bafana] score more goals".

Tourism, events and marketing mayoral committee member, Grant Pascoe, told the newspaper that the SA Football Association had been impressed with the stadium and the support received for Bafana Bafana's last match there against Norway in January.

"It will be an estimated expenditure of R3.1 million to host the game, with cost recovery on ticket sales, hospitality and concession," he said.
