South Africa Awaits!

It is time for 2010 Soccer World Cup but Soccer Fever has just started to build up. Soccer is in full swing as every day some dramatic things are happening. Argentina has been humbled by Bolivia recently and on the other part of the world Australians have started packing there bags also. I am pretty sure that this time around too Soccer World Cup would be a great spectacle to watch. I was never a great fan of this game. I didn’t saw the magician Pele but I have seen Maradona play and since then I have never missed any of the football matches during previous World Cups but have seen them on television only. Sometimes I did manage to get to the stadiums, thanks to my friends who always sponsored my soccer tickets. The thrill of watching football matches live in the stadium is such an adventurous experience in itself which is difficult to explain. You have to be there to experience it but yes getting to the stadium is another story.

The way soccer fans have been queuing up for the soccer tickets and soccer packages around the world is amazing. It seems the whole world is getting ready for an African Safari in South Africa and why not, it is a beautiful country, isn’t it! We all have loyalties to our teams but at least I am sure of one thing that even I spent way over for my World Cup Trip, I won’t be repenting.

The tickets will be allocated in a lottery on April 15. Well I am going to stay away from this lottery stuff. Baring in mind the recent economic conditions and the rush that has already started building up I have decided to book my Soccer Tickets and Travel Packages with WorldFootballTravel.com for my most awaited Soccer Trip to the African Continent.
