Cape Town - Soccer fans are gearing up to enjoy the next round of the Orange African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2014 tournament taking place at the Cape Town Stadium and Athlone Stadium  2014 and on Monday, 20 January 2014.

On Sunday 19 January, South Africa will take on Nigeria, followed, on Monday 20 January, by the Morocco versus Uganda game.
Both games are taking place at the Cape Town Stadium. Bafana Bafana will need to win against or draw with Nigeria in order to qualify for the tournament’s semi-final match.

Mozambique will take on Mali on Sunday 19 January at the Athlone Stadium, followed by the Burkina Faso versus Zimbabwe game on Monday 20 January.

‘Bafana Bafana are certainly on top of their game, and we are calling on all Capetonians to put on their soccer shirts and come out in their numbers to support either our home team or the other African teams of choice,’ says the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing, Councillor Grant Pascoe.
