Every FIFA World Cup TM is different, with the host nation in particular lending each edition of FIFA's flagship tournament its own flavour, unique characteristics and memorable moments. But the 2010 FIFA World Cup TM has the potential to be the most memorable yet with its South African setting marking the long awaited arrival of the world football's most prestigious tournament on humanity's oldest continent.

It has been a long road, both in convincing the doubters that South Africa was ready to receive the FIFA World Cup and then in meeting the long list of requirements that go into staging an event of this magnitude.

South Africa is ready and the country's hosting of FIFA's biggest tournament is set to see the "Rainbow Nation" welcome hundreds of thousands of international football fans, many of them first-time visitors to Africa. In between enjoying football matches of the highest caliber there will be the chance to discover and savour the diversity of South Africa and the famed warmth of its equally diverse people-whose 11 distinctive cultures and languages have now come together in a nation particularly well-suited to welcoming the 31 international teams who will be arriving in the country.

While the international fans are sampling all that South Africa has to offer, this will also be a tournament for the South African people. With the help of the Local Organizing Committee and the FIFA Partners, FIFA's innovative Ticket Fund initiative has enabled thousands of local residents who would not otherwise have been able to afford tickets to a World Cup match to take their places in the stadiums. For those without tickets, the FIFA Fan Fests TM will again be providing a stadium atmosphere in public viewing areas across the country and, for the first time, in six other locations around the globe - a fitting project for a tournament that promises to bring the world to Africa and beam Africa to the world.
