Eswatini eye Orlando and Dobsonville for home venue


The Eswatini football association (EFA) has stretched their look for the Afcon qualifier home venue to the Orlando and Dobsonville stadiums.

Reports suggest the EFA has successfully negotiated with the city of Johannesburg, through SAFA to use one of the two venues for the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations home qualifier against Guinea-Bissau.

Both venues have now been forwarded to CAF for approval and it is expected that the African football mother body will give the green light anytime next week for the 26 march encounter.

CAF banned EFA from using the Mavuso Sports Centre for any of its competitions because it did not meet international standards after raising concerns on the stadium pitch and dressing rooms.

It was initially reported that Eswatini would opt for the Mbombela stadium which is just a three hour drive.
