TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. SEE BELOW:
We cannot purchase tickets for clients. On the FIFA website the process to apply
for tickets is as follows:
3. Wait for an email confirming the outcome of your application
5. Payment will be taken based on confirmation
The terms and conditions for the World Cup period are also very strict, with most properties requesting full pre-payment to secure a booking and 100% cancellation penalties should a confirmed booking be cancelled.
The majority of the properties that are available subject to change without prior notice as we are not holding block bookings over this period and the above terms and conditions will apply.
FIFA will need to review their stock and we anticipate that this will take place
in January 2010 at which time we may be able to source alternative properties.

SA SOCCER LEGENDS

Football - or soccer, as we call it - is the most widely played sport in South Africa, with its traditional support base in the black community.
For many South Africans the country's proudest sporting moment came when we won the Africa Cup of Nations on home turf in 1996 - having failed even to qualify for the previous cup.
Soccer is intensely followed, and the quality of the local game keeps improving - as demonstrated by the increasing number of South African players-in-exile among the glamorous European clubs.
The national football team, Bafana Bafana - "The Boys" - may not have progressed beyond the first round of the 2002 World Cup, but five goals, one win, one draw and a 3-2 thriller against Spain did more than erase the disappointment of the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations in Mali - it confirmed South Africa's arrival as a force in world football.
Local teams, organized in a national league plus a plethora of knock-out cups, are followed with the same passion as in many other countries, by paint-daubed, costumed, whistling and cheering fans. Mercifully, the country has been spared the spectre of football hooliganism.
Soccer was the first of the country's three major sports - the other two being cricket and rugby - to fully integrate. Today there is a good mix of players of all colors playing in the Premier Soccer League, the national team and other less glamorous sides.
There's probably no quicker way to "break the ice" with the South African man on the street than to demonstrate some knowledge of local soccer. To help you improve your conversational skills, here's a crash course on the country's most important teams and competitions.
