David Green, Chief Executive Officer at the V&A Waterfront says,

As one of Cape Town’s best-known tourism jewels, and a neighbour to the Cape Town Stadium, the V&A Waterfront is a prime catchment area for locals and visitors in search of the football experience that will thrill the Mother City during June and July. We’ve partnered with some big brands in football such as Coca-Cola, adidas and MTN to ensure an interactive offering which is tailored for fans in search of World Cup celebrations in a safe and secure environment. And, as a hub for celebrations all year round, welcoming on average 1, 7 million visitors every month, and more than 160 000 every New Year’s Eve without incident, we are fully equipped and ready to host the influx of visitors during the World Cup period.

The Waterfront will be split up into 4 fan zones;

  • Eagles’ Nest and Lions’ Den – Breakwater Parking Rooftop
  • MTN Fan Zone
  • Quay 4 (Market Plaza) Spectator Zone
  • Hyundai Spectator Zone

Each of the 4 zones will offer football fans the chance to watch all games live, eat great food, drink great beer and wine, listen to live music, buy local food and drinks and have the chance to take part in interactive Football games!

For more information on how to get there and what you can expect head on over to the dedicated Waterfront 2010 website (http://2010.waterfront.co.za/).

Be sure to take special notice of the car parking restrictions and pedestrian routes as the Waterfront is expecting thousands of extra visitors during this time (http://2010.waterfront.co.za/Parking.aspx)
