I think SA will be on track for the WC in 2010. (Of course there will be many ministers arrested first on fraud charges...always) but the police are
very good at locking down the areas of play and directing traffic flow, fans etc.
We just had Manchester United play against some local teams in Durban where the new stadium is being built and it went down smoothly. I think Ive got
a pic of what the 2010 stadium will look like when complete - It looks pretty cool.
The only problem I see is - Like with any major city, there are places you go & places you dont and its VERY advisable that you find out where you can
& cant go if visiting. - THeres Hilton hotels etc so show the host your itinerary and ask advice and you will have no problems
(I found the pic) - The smaller stadium on the left is where MAN UTD just played last weekend. That grey bit in the middle is the train station so if
commuting by train, you will be funneled straight to the stadium with no problems. I suggest doing an image google search for Durban - Its not half as
bad as most of you think it is. Theres a serious negative stereotype that we all live in mud huts and cant speak english, have pet lions and theres
zebra on the runway but I seriously beg to differ. (Based on my time spent in the UK) Im a young white male, and this one girl in the UK said "You
speak english very well, did you learn how to speak English before you came over?" LOL!!
In MANY ways I found Durban to be much better than London and the Northern districts.
