The city is also home to two of South Africa’s most popular football teams, and the prime attractions for visitors to Johannesburg in 2010 will, of course, be Soccer City and Ellis Park Stadium.

Pretoria’s rich history is evident in the numerous monuments, forts, museums and galleries which can be found across the city. South Africa’s administrative capital since 1910, Pretoria is surrounded by several nature reserves, providing a convenient way to sample the country’s fascinating culture and wildlife in one trip. Loftus Versfeld Stadium is located close to the city centre and is one of the oldest stadiums in South Africa, in use since 1903. At that time it could seat just 2,000 spectators, but its most recent renovations have increased that number to over 50,000. The stadium will play host to first- and second-round matches in the World Cup tournament.
