Feel It !
2010 FIFA World Cup football championship hosted in South Africa.
2010 FIFA World Cup football championship hosted in South Africa for the first time ever. Feel it! The ambience, excitment and celebrations. The 2010 Soccer World Cup was the 19th FIFA World Cup, the world championship for men’s national association football teams. It took place in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July 2010. The bidding process for hosting the tournament finals was open only to African nations. South Africa welcomed more than 3 million football fans from around the world to enjoy the planet’s most popular sport being played by the top international teams. Football, also known as soccer, is a major part of South African culture – from the young boys that kick the ball around the informal settlements and rural villages to the professional sportsmen and -women that have made their mark on the world’s football scene. South Africa leaves a World Cup legacy to remember. This world tournament meant more to South Africa than this time-honoured sport, though. This event saw a massive rejuvenation of local resources and infrastructure, a cooperation amongst so many industries, to make it the best, most vibrant, and most efficient event of the century. As South Africans welcomed visitors and football fans from all over the globe, this country came alive with possibilities and united in the shared passion of a sport.
