The newly build Cape Town stadium came alive yesterday with a deafening sound of thousands of vuvezala’s. No announcement could be heard but who cares about announcements anyway? The heat of the sun was something I worried about more. Aj, I was SO hot. Box 119, not a good one for a match in Summer that starts at 16h00. It was fantastic to be part of this event though. Totally excited to now finally see the stadium on the inside and see it come alive with so many people in it.
Both Ajax Cape Town and Santos supporters proudly supported their clubs and had the time of their life. Premier Helen Zille spoke before the game and thanked the public for making this day a reality: “Ke Nako. Our time has come. “This is the most beautiful stadium, in the most beautiful city with the most beautiful people in the world.
20.000 tickets for this test match were sold, which is half the capacity of the stadium. Yesterday’s game was the first of 3 “dry runs’ at the Cape Town Stadium ahead of the WC. On 6 February 2010 there will be a rugby match that will cater for 40.000 rugby fans. The full capacity is 68.000
