                                                                                                           About the 2010 World Cup Event in South Africa

Ever since South Africa was chosen as the first African country to host the FIFA World Cup 2010 the country has been abuzz with excitement. To be able to host this prestigious event has been a great achievement for the country and people of South Africa. This nation will derive a huge benefit from exposure to people in the rest of the World via the visitors themselves and through exposure on the international media. The long term benefits to the economic development are massive.

The Cape Town Stadium                 A beautiful stadium has been built for the World Cup in Cape Town. It’s elegant oval form dominates the skyline on the Atlantic seaboard. It seats 70,000 fans. Table Mountain can be glimpsed through the roof  of the Stadium. It is located within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront, De Waterkant and the city centre.  There is a public transport plan for Match days and visitors are recommended to familiarise themselves with it before the matches.

We recommend that visitors go to the V&A Waterfront or the City Centre several hours prior to the match and enjoy a relaxing meal and drink before walking to the match: www.waterfront.co.za

Tips from Cape Town Tourism, the official Tourism body for Cape Town, on getting around in Cape Town during the World Cup Matches.

Self-drive. There will be road closures, traffic exclusion areas, parking restrictions and probable congestion. It will be better to use some of the alternative transport methods available. 

Shuttle buses: Special shuttle buses will take visitors between Cape Town’s central transport hub in Hertzog Boulevard and the Cape Town stadium on match days. From the hub, you can take a metered taxi to your accommodation. Look out for the information kiosk and volunteers who will happily assist you with directions or advice.

Railway: an efficient, safe rail network serves Most of the Cape Town metro area. The central station is a short walk from the transport hub in Hertzog Boulevard. There will be 15 major stations offering park-and-ride facilities, metered taxi services and security, lighting, information points and volunteer assistance. Ten smaller stations will offer security but not information points. There will also be a regular service from the central railway station to the outlying towns of Stellenbosch and Paarl.

Metered taxis: These will operate from some of the 15 major rail stations and from the central transport hub in Hertzog Boulevard outside the Cape Town Civic Centre.

Walking. The Fan Walk starts outside the central railway station in Adderley Street and ends at the entrance to the stadium precinct – a distance of about 2.5km along an easy route where vehicles will not be allowed. This will be a great and safe way to get into the festive spirit with other fans. There will also be pedestrian access to the stadium from the V&A Waterfront. Walking to the stadium and back on match days is strongly recommended, as there could be delays while transporting spectators from the stadium by bus after matches. Just one precaution, as in most large cities, walking alone after dark in unpopulated areas is discouraged.
