Wolfsburg want revenge on Birds

Posted: 30 December 2009 Time: 09:54

Germany’s Bundesliga champions Vfl Wolfsburg and Moroka Swallows are set to lock horns in the VW Challenge in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

According to a report in The Herald this morning, the battle for the VW Ambassadors Cup will be a rare visit for a German-based club playing in South Africa.

The game, which will be held at the NMMU Xerox Stadium, will mark the second encounter between the two clubs.

Their previous game was held in Hanover, Germany, in 2007 with Swallows winning 1-0.

Currently placed eighth in the PSL, the Dube Birds will have to toughen up their game against a star-studded side that will be seeking revenge for their home defeat two years ago.

Wolfsburg are expected to land in the PE at 20h00 on Sunday and Swallows at lunchtime on the same day.

The day after their encounter, the clubs – along with Bay United – will be hosting a coaching clinic for children, which will be held at the New Brighton Oval.

The training camp is expected to attract many children from rural areas.
