Progress at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium is moving ahead swiftly as the city prepares to host its share of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
According to Julie-May Ellingson, Head of 2010 Programme, a significant amount of work has been completed in recent months on the more aesthetic elements of the stadium - giving local Durbanites an idea of what their 2010 stadium will look like.
"With the completion of 75% of the precast seating (the concrete structure onto which the seats themselves will be fitted), the view from inside the stadium bowl is increasingly one which gives you a preview of our future stadium.
Cape Town - The City of Cape Town on Tuesday announced that a consortium of Sail Group and Stade de France has been selected as the preferred bidder to operate the 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium in Green Point, after the world cup.
Sail is the largest sport management company in South Africa, while Stade de France is an 80 000-seater stadium in France and one of the most successful and lucrative facilities of its kind.
A contract with the consortium will be negotiated by the end of October and once a contract is signed, the operator will be involved before the world cup to ensure detailed design, planning and a seamless handover from FIFA at the end of the tournament.

As I am a student, I don't have much time, apart from my holidays, to do research and write articles. I would appreciate if volunteers e.g. blog owners, freelance journalists or criminologists would allow me to place their articles (credit will be given to the author). Articles just need to be in line with the mission of the website (see About). Contact me

Getting behind the statistics to offer a sober and sobering account of the scale of the crime problem and its evolution, the book describes how government has sometimes sought to deal with the crisis and sometimes sought to deny its existence. The book ends with some suggestions of what needs to be done to deal with this scourge. Buy
