Showcase venue

The showcase venue of the 2010 FIFA world cup held in South Africa. This is soccer city which was in Johannesburg and this is the very same venue that held the world cup final only a few days later between Spain & the Netherlands. Luckily for us we saw both teams during that world cup and in this particular match it was me crossing off an item of my bucket list: watching Brazil in the world cup! It was Brazil against the Ivory Coast which Brazil won by 3-1 in emphatic fashion, couldn’t have asked for a better experience πŸ™‚

    • I highly recommend it… even if you can’t get into the stadium just being around it and all the festivities is quite an experience by itself πŸ™‚

    • Inga, the world cup as an experience that you have to go through if you like sports. The way the world comes together for a sport and festive atmosphere… NOTHING IS QUITE LIKE IT!! And apparently I experienced a subdued world cup because of all the security concerns over Africa!!!
