Johannesburg - The Vuvuzelas which created high drama in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup will not be permitted at Airtel Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) matches, starting at Wanderers on Friday, 10 September.
Highveld Lions will host Mumbai Indians to kick-start the much waited league of the champion clubs of various cricketing nations.
The CLT20 Governing Council said on Tuesday it is confident that fans will have an enjoyable experience at the matches, given the high quality of cricket on offer, and the top entertainment elements that have been sourced.
According to Sports24.co.za, CLT20 governing council member, Gerald Majola, said: “We have had various discussions with key stakeholders and we feel the vuvuzela is not appropriate for cricket.
“Fans at CLT20 matches will be treated to non-stop music, dancers, cheerleaders, and of course, the main attraction, the action out in the middle.
“There is no doubt that the vuvuzela added to the atmosphere during the recent FIFA World Cup, but it is certainly not the sound of cricket."
CLT20 has also many other restrictions for the fans besides the vuvuzela.
The CLT20 features 23 matches over 17 days, from September 10 till September 26.
