There’s 100 days to go to the kick off of the 2010 soccer world cup and the whole country is brimming with activities to celebrate.
The city of Johannesburg is hosting a street party in Maude Street, Sandton. A special invitation was extended to 200 school children from the Joburg Home for Vulnerable Children and Sizwile School for the Deaf.
Bafana Bafana will play host to Namibia on the 3rd March. This match is the official inauguration of the Moses Mabhida stadium.
The event at the Moses Mabhida stadium is apparently going to be quite spectacular. From musicians to artists learning new steps and dance styles, to caterers finalising their menu, to engineers and event managers, all are working round-the-clock to make the event a show-stopper. The celebration will include a gala banquet which will be attended by the Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
The South African National Defence Force will join in the celebrations by presenting two fly-pasts at the Sandton Convention Centre and at the main event in Durban.
A one hour live community radio phone-in programme will be broadcast on 66 stations reaching approximately seven million listeners, will also mark the day’s celebrations.
