How Soccer City was saved: a wunch of bankers sees sense before AFCON 2013

My interview with Gareth Edwards on eNCAnews featured an appeal to FNB over the naming of Soccer City, venue of the opening – and closing – games of AFCON 2013. Within hours, the bankers had agreed to renaming “The National Stadium” allowing Bafana Bafana v Cape Verde to go ahead on January 19. FIFA and CAF won’t allow “sponsored” stadiums in their tournaments.
