South Africa 2010
16 June 2010

Bus from the parking lots to the stadium — one or two vuvuzelas on a bus is plenty!
Given its location (Nelspruit is near Kruger, far from most population centers), the teams and matchup, its impressive the stadium was fairly full for this one. Many of the tickets appear to have gone to South African school kids who came to the game in their school uniforms. We bought our tickets from the ticket center in Nelspruit a few hours before the game. We also bought tickets for the Argentina-Korea Republic game for the next day from a local entrepreneur (for a bit over face value).
The Nelspruit stadium, built especially for the world cup, is a very nice design, situated in the mountains near Kruger National Park.
