Clubs Happy With Coke Cup Venues 24/11/04
All four Coca-Cola Cup semi-finalists have conceded their satisfaction with the venues of their scheduled matches.

Kaizer Chiefs take on Moroka Swallows at Loftus Stadium in Pretoria next Saturday, while Supersport United take on Wits University at Olen Park the following day.

"The cup committee have decided on the venue, but we don't have a problem going to Potchefstroom. We actually wanted to play our previous cup game against United at the same venue earlier in the season, but a rugby match made us change to Olympia Park in Rustenburg," said Wits University manager George Mogotsi was quoted by News24.com.

"As long as the goalposts are the right size and the pitch is in good condition, we are happy to play anywhere in the country. The people in that part of the country are hungry for football and have been supportive of games played there."

Pitso Mosimane is hoping his Supersport side can secure their second trophy this season, following their SAA Supa 8 success, also said he had no problem playing in the North West town.

"I saw the facility when the national teams were scheduled to play there and I have no complaints. The pitch looked in a super condition and I hope it is kept the same for our game," he added.

Gavin Hunt welcomed Loftus as the venue of their semi-final with Chiefs.

"It doesn't really matter where we play. Loftus suits us fine. The playing surface is perfect and better than the Absa Stadium pitch, which was bumpy the last time we played Chiefs. We hope the weather will be cool when we play there," Hunt said.

Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung said. "We are at home anywhere in the country and playing at Loftus won't make any difference. It is a neutral venue and doesn't give either of us an advantage."
