Johannesburg - First National Bank (FNB) confirmed on Thursday that it has agreed to relinquish its naming and signage rights to the FNB Stadium during the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament, for matches and related tournament events only.

For the duration of the AFCON spectacle, the stadium - which hosted the final of the 2010 Soccer World Cup - will be known as the National Stadium.

The waiver ceases following the final match on February 10 next year, with FNB being able to exercise all its previous rights seven days thereafter.
