Soccer fans around the world are gearing up for the World Cup in South Africa 2010. Held in 10 different stadiums across the country, this will mark the first time that the FIFA World Cup has ever been hosted in an African country. The World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world, and to soccer fans it is the most important event too. People are already booking flights, buying tickets and making hotel arrangements so that they don’t have to miss a minute of the action. South Africa will be hosting the month long event until one of the 32 teams is declared the champion. Since this is the first time that the tournament has ever been in Africa, there are sure to be a lot of surprises in store.

With the first game kicking off on 11th June 2010, there is already less than a year to apply for tickets and make your arrangements for South Africa 2010. Cities across South Africa are bustling with excitement as new stadiums are built for the event and existing stadiums are renovated and made ready for the scores of soccer fans that will be streaming into the country. The oldest and most established of the field’s is Loftus, in Tshwane/Pretoria. This stadium has also been host to the 2009 Confederate Cup. There are about 30 hotels in the area for fans that are hoping to stay near this venue.

New fields are being built in Cape TownPort ElizabethNelspruit and Gauteng in honor of the World Cup being in South Africa 2010.

The three major airports in South Africa are in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Coincidentally, many of the matches are being held in stadiums that are in or around these general areas. Hotels, Guest Houses & Bed and Breakfast establishments are sure to book quickly though, so it may be easier to get accommodations closer to one of the stadiums that are further away from the major airports.

South Africa is a huge change from other countries that have hosted the World Cup in the recent history. Information about South Africa such as where to stay and how to get there can be found on the internet. You may want to browse for recommendations for South Africa Hotels Resorts and you will definitely need to register now for tickets. Whatever you do though, do it soon, there is less than a year! Even if you just go to tailgate, South Africa 2010 is guaranteed to be a great time!

There’s more to South Africa than lions. Johannesburg, a city of skyscrapers, sprawls wider than London or New York. The lights work, the water flows, there are multi-lane highways and – unfortunately – traffic jams. You can book into a Hilton or a Hyatt or a Holiday Inn and eat at cosmopolitan restaurants serving anything from sushi to burgers to crocodile steaks. Or you can just lie back on a couch and choose from five analogue and 53 digital TV channels.

There are two capitals. Cape Town, the oldest city, is the legislative capital, where Parliament resides, Pretoria, 1 500 kilometres to the north, is the executive capital, where the government administration is housed. Next door to Pretoria, and close enough that the outer suburbs merge, is the commercial centre of Johannesburg, once the world’s greatest gold mining centre, now increasingly dominated by modern financial and service sectors. The second-biggest city is Durban, a fast-growing port on the eastern coast, and the supply route for most goods to the interior
Yes, even in the smallest towns, where main roads often date back to the 19th century, and are wide enough to turn ox-wagons. Outside the cities, there are 8 000 kilometres of tarred and regularly maintained national highway, plus a thousand more kilometres of toll roads. Almost 1 500 kilometres of those routes are dual carriageway, with this number constantly rising. The national railway has 30 600 kilometres of rail track connecting the smallest hamlets. Some 3 600 locomotives pull 124 000 wagons of freight each day. There are three international airports big enough to land jumbos, 10 national airports large enough for most big commercial jets, and another 700 smaller airports.
The phones work and they dial abroad. The country’s telecommunications operator Telkom, part government and part foreign owned, is the 28th largest in the world, and accounts for 39% of the phone lines on the African continent. It is well ahead of targets on an ambitious scheme to push telecommunications into the remotest rural communities. Cellular phones are ubiquitous in South Africa, where there were 11.2 million users in January 2001 – a figure that grows by 9 000 each day.
You can use Visa and MasterCard almost everywhere, and bank by ATM or online. There’s a sophisticated financial sector, abreast of all the latest technological trends. There are 13 commercial and merchant banks, and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange is the world’s 15th largest in terms of market capitalisation.
