SA marks 30 day countdown to World Cup
With exactly 30 days to go before the start of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, campaigns to get the nation hyped around the tournament are in top gear. Around 150 diski dancers will make stops in the Johannesburg City Centre and move through to the Maponya Mall in Soweto to mark the 30 days countdown to the tournament.
The diski dancers will move to the Bree and Noord taxi ranks taking photo's with people and handing out flags and pamphlets. They will also engage the crowd asking questions around the World Cup. They will then move to Soweto in a convoy of buses where the program will be concluded in the afternoon.
In Cape Town, Mayor Dan Plato is expected to announce the city's 2010 World Cup programme today. The programme will detail activities available to locals and tourists during the showpiece.
The city says it wants to ensure that Capetonians have a chance to be part of events at the Grand Parade Fan Fest and other Public Viewing Areas.
South Africa, the first African nation to host the Fifa World Cup, is scheduled to host soccer fans from around the world from June 11 to July 11. The 2010 soccer extravaganza will be the 19th Fifa World Cup to take place. Italy are the defending champions.
