Facility Notes: South African Side Cape Town City Committed To Building Own Facility

South African Premier Soccer League side Cape Town City is "committed to building" its own facility -- which will include a training and match venue. The club needs the City of Cape Town to "get moving in assisting the club to make it possible." Cape Town City Chair John Moitis said that building his own home ground is "becoming a matter of urgency" (IOL, 11/20).

Cheltenham Racecourse has been "heavily criticised following the death of four horses in the space of three days," with one jockey calling for organizers to be “ashamed of themselves.” On Friday, two horses died in separate incidents. Saturday's racing saw five-year-old Glenmona "stumble and fall on the back straight of a flat race, which resulted in her death," and on Sunday a fourth horse died. The incidents brought the number of horses killed at Cheltenham this year to 11 (London INDEPENDENT, 11/20).
