2010 FIFA World Cup Fixtures
Posted in General
The vibrant cosmopolitan metropolis 2010 Host City of Cape Town, with a population of over 3 million is the capital of the Western Cape Province and is South Africa’s third biggest city. A city known for its magnificent natural scenery, wines and stunning beaches.
The ample accommodation available in Cape Town will see fans basing themselves in the city, and traveling to games in 2010 host cities of other South African regions, such as Durban and Bloemfontein, during the tournament where there is a current lack of accommodation.
The residents of Cape Town will benefit from lasting improvements to services and infrastructure, which include the new stadium in Green Point, road interchange upgrades, airport upgrade, rail link upgrade, and the roll-out of an integrated bus rapid transit (BRT) system.
Cape Town’s charm and appeal of world-class beaches, ample tourist attractions and cosmopolitan night life makes Cape Town the ‘must visit’ host city for visitors during the world cup when compared to other 2010 FIFA World Cup host cities.
With the variety of accommodation options that have become available in the city around the time of the tournament, Cape Town is also best placed to take advantage of ‘last-minute travelers’, an emerging trend whereby international spectators fly in for a single game and return home in the space of a few days, with next year’s tournament predicted to have the highest number of this type of tourist than any previous World Cup.
