MANY local rugby fans will be disappointed as the 2010 Fifa World Cup preparations take centre stage and the only scheduled Super 14 for the city will now be played at Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein. No “official reason” has been given why the clash between the Vodacom Cheetahs and the Auto & General Lions on Saturday, May 15 is being moved. However, it is believed that GWK Park may be used as a training facility for an as yet unnamed World Cup soccer team training facility. Uruguay has been tipped to come to Kimberley, though a number of other countries have also shown some interest.
