FIFA 2010 World Cup – Stadiums and Hotels

As the FIFA 2010 World Cup draws closer, many football fans will be starting their preparations for the long journey to South Africa that is ahead of them. There will be laughter, tears, anger, joy and desperation as the groups and games play out – but none of this will happen without a match ticket or suitable accommodation.

With thousands of football fans from across the globe travelling to South Africa to see the FIFA 2010 World Cup, finding a hotel that doesn’t overcharge or isn’t fully-booked can be difficult. Local business people will attempt to capitalise on the huge boom in football fans looking to find hotels, so it may be inevitable that you have to spend a little extra on your accommodation next summer.

Johannesburg – Soccer City

Soccer City is the largest football stadium in Africa, boasting a maximum capacity of 94,700 fans. The stadium will host the opening match of the FIFA 2010 World Cup, four first round matches, one second round match, one quarter-final and the World Cup final.

Because of it’s location in the city of Johannesburg, the Soccer City Stadium (sometimes referred to as F.N.B. Stadium) is close to the built-up areas of the city, meaning that there will be many local hotels in ideal locations for travelling football fans.

Make sure you shop around before you book your hotel room. Hoteliers are likely to raise their prices tenfold, so have a thorough search to ensure you get the best value for your accommodation.
