Addressing a press conference at the Civic Centre recently, chairperson of LOC, Jonas Ikgopoleng said street vendors would not be allowed to carry their tables into the stadium. “We realised during the Burkina Faso game that the vendors blocked passages with their tables, which disturbed the entry of supporters into the stadium. This time around we will only allow vendors who will be using stalls available at the stadium.

“Only vendors who would have been allocated stalls will be allowed to trade at the stadium during the match. Those who previously got the opportunity will not be considered this time,” said Ikgopoleng.
