About 2010 FIFA World Cup

2010 FIFA World Cup is currently ongoing in South Africa. South Africa Tourism said that the tourism from the 2010 World Cup is expected to rake in an estimated 27 billion Rand.


Alicia Keys and Black Eyed Peas performed at a concert supposed to officially "kick off" the event.

Colombian singer Shakira revealed that the World cup concert is unforgettable - because her emotional performance left her parents teary and proud.

Jabulani ball

The Jabulani has landed its makers, Britain's Loughborough University, in trouble after one of the dullest and lowest scoring starts to the tournament in living memory. The Jabulanis aerodynamic effects coupled with Johannesburg's altitude may just be the reason why strikers and goalies have been grumbling about the Adidas manufactured ball this soccer World Cup, says an Indian origin American scientist.

Vuvuzela horns

Freddie Maake, the man who is believed to have come up with the idea of Vuvuzela horns in the 1960s, said football fans in Britain should embrace the sound as it is part of the unique experience of South African football. Meanwhile, Waves Audiointroduced Vuvuzela Noise Reduction Solution for the games. A sound engineer based in Munich, Germany claimed to have devised a hi-tech antidote to the popular Vuvuzela, the deafening plastic trumpets, which have attracted complaints from viewers and players alike.

World Cup organizers have made it clear that Vuvuzelas will not be banned from stadiums in South Africa despite complaints of them being a nuisance.
