WORLD CUP 2010 SOUTH AFRICA LATEST FAN FEST / FAN PARK NEWS

Fan parks are planned around South Africa during the 2010 World Cup but as yet details have not been finalised. Information continues to trickle out from the 2010 World Cup organising committee regarding the fan fests, and updates and latest fan park news will appear here as it happens.

23/11/09 FIFA announce World Cup fan fests - Following the success of fan parks in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, a host of international cities will stage fan fests during the 2010 tournament - where fans can watch games for free. London, Paris, Rome, Sydney, Berlin, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro will all lay on facilities for fans while 10 locations in South Africa will be announced at a later date.

29/06/07  Fan Parks could attract 1 million 2010 World Cup visitors - Liverpool University football academic Dr Rogan Taylor has highlighted the importance of public viewing areas and fan parks during the World Cup. Speaking at the Soccerex seminar, Dr Taylor said a million visitors were expected in South Africa for the tournament. "Less than 10 years ago, the host country would have advised people not to travel if they did not have tickets. But now everybody comes, ticket or no tickets," he said.

02/03/07  Cape Town World Cup 2010 spokesman Pieter Cronje reveals potential fan park plans Speaking after a meeting between Cape Town authorities to discuss the 2010 World Cup,  spokesman Pieter Cronje revealed plans for several fan fests in and around the city. The main fan park is likely to be at the Grand Parade with others at Bellville Velodrome and at the Athlone stadium. Cape Town city council plan to increase pedestrianism, formalize taxi services and bring more buses into the city to better deal with the influx of football fans. Cronje went on to say that fan parks may be dotted in and around the city in numerous locations and suggested that other major cities in the Cape Province would stage similar events.
