Newcastle Pre-Season Plans Hit By Cancellation
Reports from South Africa say that the tournament has been cancelled with only two of the intended four teams having committed to the tournament and signed on the dotted line.
Kaiser Chiefs and Orlando Pirates had signed up but allegedly SuperSport United (bit frightening…not a million miles away from SportsDirect United!) and Newcastle United hadn’t reached agreement.
The organisers ‘SAIL’ confirmed the cancellation and apparently there had been unease as to the cost of hosting the event which was due to be subsidised by public money.
As reported in South Africa’s The Mercury.
