Nematandani Calls For Afcon Support

With Bafana Bafana having been eliminated from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, the South African Football Association’s president, Kirsten Nematandani, has urged the South African population to continue supporting the Afcon.

The two respective semi-finals will be played on Wednesday, where Nigeria play Malawi at the Moses Mabhida Stadium and Ghana travel to the Mbombela Stadium to face Burkina Faso, while the final is hosted at the National Stadium on Sunday.

 

Nematandani wants local football fans to continue attending the games at the stadiums, despite Bafana no longer featuring in the tournament. He told the Siya crew that the fans have expressed their love for the game and the organisers are delighted at this.

 

“We urge all supporters to continue supporting the remaining teams in the semi-finals, until the final. It won't be a good advertisement of football to the outside world if we don't continue to fill the stadiums. 

 

“We know our team is out of the tournament, but to make this tournament a success, we have to continue supporting the other teams until the last day. Let's show the world that we can support the other teams as well. Look at how we filled the stadium in Durban. Let's do that everywhere until the end,” Nematandani said.
