The two teams will be competing in the semi-final at Moses Mabhida Stadium as the FNB Stadium will be hosting a National Day of Prayer which interferes with the upcoming fixture.

The FNB Stadium is the usual venue for the semi-final match, however, organisers have opted to use Moses Mabhida after it became unavailable.
