I heard some very exciting news yesterday… The absolutely gorgeous Cape Town Stadium will be hosting a final test event for this year’s World Cup when four national under-20 teams will take part in the Cape Town International Challenge on the 10th of April 2010.
South Africa’s young guns will be taking on Nigeria at 16:30 on the day, while Ghana will be facing the samba kings Brazil later that day at 19:00. This obviously means that we will all have the opportunity to see a game of footy at the stadium AT NIGHT!!!
The tickets will cost a measly R20 or R30 and will be available exclusively from Computicket (details as to when these will be available for purchase will follow as soon, as I know).
Cape Town’s Deputy Mayor- Ian Nielsen had this to say earlier this week-
“It is important that this fourth event tests us to the limits,” and thus this event would be used to test every aspect of Cape Town’s preparations for the World Cup.
Of the eight games scheduled to take place at Cape Town Stadium during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, seven are going to be held at night and thus it was of paramount importance to work out the best ways to get spectators home after the matches.
Norman Arendse, president of SAFA Cape Town, said that all 65 000 seats would be available for the Cape Town International Challenge- I am sooo there!!!! Kreg and I went to the last event there and it was AWESOME.
Apparently all tickets for Cape Town matches during the World Cup are already sold out (SNIFF) and that the Cape Town International Challenge would be the last chance for fans who missed out to see a game at the stadium until after the global spectacle has concluded.
Come on peeps, get involved!!!!
