Vuvuzela Blog - Getting Ready for the 2010 World Cup
My new VuvuzelaSouthAfrica Blog isn't just about Vuvuzelas. It is about soccer - local and international; about South African tourism and interesting places to visit and things to do and of course about the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
And I have a partner in this venture, Lantz from Afromedia, who is doing all the technical stuff, which leaves the writing to me.
Vuvuzelas Banned in Austria
Now, I know there are people who don't like the vuvuzela. They don't like the noise, they say, and recently we were told Austrian League Bans Vuvuzelas because they were afraid that the vuvus would be "used as missiles"
But, fortunately there are some of us who love these brightly colored plastic trumpets, and we don't care what the history of the vuvuzela really is. All we care about is the sense of excitement in the stadiums that they create and the support that the sound of the vuvuzelas give our boys when they are on the field.
FIFA will not Ban the Vuvuzela from the 2010 World Cup
We know that FIFA will not Ban the Vuvuzela from the 2010 World Cup .
“We approach this in a relaxed manner. I am convinced the vuvuzelas will be a hit at the World Cup. It will be a World Cup with African sound,” Hans Klaus, director of communications at FIFA, told reporters .
