The draw had initially been scheduled for Cairo in Egypt which hosts the CAF headquarters. "CAF has confirmed that draw will now be held here instead of Egypt. It is going to be held on the first week of July, either on the 4th or the 5th," LOC chief executive Mvuzo Mbebe says. The official draw is also scheduled for Johannesburg on October 26. Meanwhile, Mbebe says the LOC is not concerned at the poor attendances at local matches saying this will not have a bearing on the attendance of the Afcon matches. The Premier Soccer League season has finished amid paltry crowds. "South Africans have demonstrated they can rise to the occasions when it comes to international tournaments. For example during the 2009 Confederations Cup, initially, the attendances were not impressive but peaked as the tournament progressed," he says. "South Africa also is more cosmopolitan that most recent previous hosts of the tournament. Some people are in the Diaspora here and I am confident they will follow their teams. I am in no doubt there will be a full house at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies at Soccer City."
