South Africa Premier Soccer League Matches Postponed As Nation Mourns Mandela
Published December 10, 2013
EUROPEAN TOUR CHANGES: REUTERS' Nick Said reported the European Tour's Nelson Mandela Championship at Durban's Mount Edgecombe Country Club "will start a day earlier on Wednesday to ensure that all four rounds of the golf tournament are played by Saturday." The European Tour said, "In recognition of the national period of mourning for the passing of former President Mr. Nelson Mandela, provision will be made for observing the day of the state funeral for Mr. Mandela which will take place on Sunday, December 15." Cricket South Africa was "full of thanks" after their Indian counterparts agreed to start a two-day warm up match for their test series 24 hours earlier to avoid finishing on Sunday. The switch means the tourists will now have just one day between the final 50-over match of their current series against the Proteas in Pretoria on Wednesday and the two-day game in Benoni starting on Friday (REUTERS, 12/9).
