Johannesburg - The case between FNB and National Stadiums over what the name of Soccer City will be was postponed in the High Court in Johannesburg on Thursday.

FNB is attempting to prevent National Stadiums who are managing Soccer City from changing its name.

"The name of the stadium is FNB stadium and we are asking they refer to it as that," said FNB's counsel.

The case was postponed until next week.
