The South African Football Association are still to name the venue for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia.
The match on June 2 will mark the start of Bafana Bafana’s bid to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals and is the opening match in Group A.
But with the match less than six weeks away, supporters are still unaware of where the tie will take place or the planned kick off time.
It will be the first international since February’s tame draw with Senegal in Durban, the latest in a series of disappointing results for Pitso Mosimane’s team.
Bafana Bafana have played nine home matches since hosting the 2010 World Cup finals.
Matches have been spread across seven venues nationwide – two at Nelspruit’s Mbombela Stadium and twice at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
The other venues used since Mosimane became coach are Soccer City, Cape Town Stadium, the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace, near Rustenburg; the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth and Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium.
