Following a productive discussion between the South African Football Association (SAFA) and
Stadium Management on May 23, Bafana Bafana’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier versus FIFA
World Cup semifinalist Morocco will take place at FNB Stadium as scheduled next month.
On Tuesday 23 May, Stadium Management CEO Bertie Grobbelaar and SAFA CEO Lydia Monyepao
met to discuss a number of concerns pertaining to the hosting of the game on June 17, 2023, at the
location of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final.
The two parties came to an agreement on every matter, including a sum owed from another game
held at the stadium.
The issue has been resolved, and the game will take place at FNB Stadium, according to Grobbelaar.
“All financial matters between SAFA and Stadium Management have been resolved and the 2023
Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Bafana Bafana and Morocco will go ahead at FNB Stadium
on 17 June 2023 as scheduled,” said Grobbelaar.
“This was an incredibly cordial engagement between two long-time partners, and I am happy that
our meeting was conducted in such a warm spirit. We are happy that all the issues have been
resolved,” said the SAFA CEO.
