Bafana Bafana Changes Mind on Home Base Again

The South African National Team has again pulled out of a prospective home base and training ground for use during the World Cup.

After negotiations last week concluding an agreement "in principle" that Sandown High School would be Bafana's training ground, it was a shock for Oupa Keele to receive news saying otherwise.

Keele, the chairman of the school's governing body, said he had received an e-mail on Tuesday from the legal department of the Fifa World Cup Organising Committee SA. The short communication informed the school that the South African team had "opted for another venue as their camp and that negotiations are terminated with immediate effect".
