The 2010/11 Vodacom Second Division play-offs, due to kick-off in late May, will be played at two separate Cape Town venues, Belhar's Erica Park and Philippi, following an inspection of five facilities.
Officials from Safa found favour with these well-maintained grounds; however, other stadiums in Khayelitsha, Nyanga and Guguletu failed their tests. "We've made our decision, agreed to use Philippi and Erica Park because we need two fields for the two streams," Safa NEC member Elvis Shishana tells KickOff.com. "As a group, after the whole exercise, we came for a debriefing and those were the two that got most of the tics, with Philippi getting the opening game as well as the final." Philippi is the home ground of Chippa United who have an excellent chance of qualifying as the Western Cape provincial representatives, but Shishana says there will be ‘no favours for nobody'. "We don't know who will be playing where," he adds. "There is a public draw in Johannesburg which will determine that, so Chippa might be lucky, they might be unlucky as well."
