CHAN match fixtures and road closures

Cape Town, get your vuvuzelas ready for the next CHAN (African Nations Championship) match at Cape Town Stadium tomorrow! We’d like to encourage you to use the fan walk, put on your team colours and bring the gees as we relive yet another epic soccer festival in Cape Town, since the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

Additionally, our Mayor De Lille has dubbed Fridays ‘CHAN Friday’ and urges all Capetonians to wear their Bafana Bafana soccer shirts or team colours every Friday, for the duration of the tournament. Cape Town Stadium will host the following matches tomorrow, 15 January 2014:

  • South Africa v Mali – 17:00
  • Nigeria v Mozambique – 20:00
