Anyone who has booked flights to Cape Town for the World Cup this summer but who does not have tickets for a match need not worry about catching all the games.
Football fans from all over the world have been booking flights to South Africa ahead of this summer’s World Cup.
Tourism officials in the city are assuring fans that, as well as providing plenty of space and big screens to watch the matches, there will be lots of additional entertainment.
Granger Bay will play host to the city’s largest fan park, with space for 25,000 spectators, while Cool Britannia on the Victoria and Albert Waterfront will be able to host a further 10,000 fans.
The latter venue will also be offering evening performances from international music stars such as Dizzee Rascal during the course of the competition.
Supporters travelling to watch their team in action in the city will probably be pleased to learn that tests on noise levels generated by the stadium have deemed them “a reasonable level for outdoors”.
Complaints had been received by some local residents regarding noise from the stadium following recent test events.
