Durban Blasts FIFA Over Rule-Breaking

FIFA is in trouble in Durban, where two practice field have been ruined by trucks delivering stadium signage, and plans for a tent city did not meet local approval.

Match, Fifa's hospitality and logistics arm, has been stopped from erecting a tent town on the south side of the R3.1 billion Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban because altered plans have not been submitted to the city.

In addition, two newly laid practice fields, which have been destroyed by heavy trucks delivering the German-made marquees, will be replaced at Fifa's cost.
