2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Poster


The official poster for the 2010 World Cup was just released. Start planning your trips to South Africa now!

FIFA: ""[It] is symbolic of the relationship between football and Africa, and captures a sense of excitement, awe and aspiration," Fifa said on its website. "It also reflects the positive impact that World Cup will have on Africa. Africa is the hero of the official event poster.""

Don't know how excited I'll be to goto South Africa. One the first day of the qualifying draw: Peter Burgstaller (former Austrian keeper) was shot, killed, and robbed on a golf course and Oliver Bierhoff (former German striker, current German team manager) was robbed of his briefcase.

I dig the poster, very well done. I still like the USA poster that Peter Max did in 94. Made me a Peter Max fan overall.

As for South Africa, they have one of the (if not THE) highest murder rate...IN THE WORLD...and one of the (if not THE) highest overall crime rates...IN THE WORLD...Dude, don't go.

In the next few years, thier safety rating has no where to go exept up!
