'CHAN needs better marketing'
The local organising committee says more needs to be done to market the soccer showcase.
CAPE TOWN - Organisers of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) admit more needs to be done to create hype about the tournament which is already underway.
The soccer showcase kicked off at Cape Town Stadium at the weekend when Bafana Bafana emerged victorious, scored three goals to Mozambique's one.
But sports fans and critics have queried sparse spectator figures.
The local organising committee's Sipho Sithole says they ran out of time.
"We had nine months to educate, create awareness about CHAN and market it shortly after the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon)."
The tournament takes place in three different cities, namely Cape Town, Polokwane and Bloemfontein.
Bafana will take on Mali at Cape Town Stadium at 5pm tomorrow.
