AFCON 2013 Final match - The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has assured of adequate security at the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Sunday night.
Nigeria will take on Burkina Faso in the final at the Soccer City, and a capacity crowd is being expected at the 95,000-capacity stadium.
'We are very comfortable with our plans – we know that the LOC (local organising committee) and the security officers, police, stewards are well organised here. They have done many big matches and they have experience,' said CAF Security Consultant Walter Gagg.
'You must remember that it is the same people who organised the 2010 FIFA World Cup here in South Africa so they have a good idea what is expected from them at this level. We will have a big crowd on Sunday but we have prepared very well for all scenarios,' Gagg told the official website of CAF.
Overall, he said the Confederation has been happy with the security arrangements at the tournament, where 31 matches have been played so far without any major incident.
'We have been happy with the security arrangements at all venues. We had security venue officials at all stadiums and the feedback was very positive. I would like to thank everyone including the South African police, stewards and CAF officials who have worked tirelessly
to ensure a safe event so far,' he said.
