While South African citizens are still getting ready for the upcoming World cup, which starts in a month from now, a local, Thulani Ngcobo can’t believe his luck, as he is the winner of a fan competition which was held by MTN8, and that granted the winner 38 tickets for the same number of world cup fixtures.

Thanks to these tickets, the lucky south African winner will have the chance to compete for the records of “most games watched at a Soccer World Cup”, when he gets to travel more than 17,000 kilometers in order to watch more than 3000 minutes of outstanding football in a whole month. The current record is set at 20 games, and Ngcobo is planning to assists to all 38 matches in order to come up with the record.
This of course is not going to come as an easy task for him, as in order to do so, he will have to be traveling from one place to another in a constant basis, for example, if there is a fixture at Cape Town at 1:30 pm, he will have to leave immediately after the match in order to assist to the next one at Soccer City at 8:30 pm.
Ngcobo, who is a resident of the township of Shoshanguve in Gauteng, is certainly satisfied with the prize, and is very thankful to MTN for allowing him to improve his lifestyle during the period on which the World Cup is going to be held at his country. He will fist go and watch the home team playing Mexico at the opening fixture.
The tickets will allow him to watch outstanding games such as Brazil playing against Ivory Coast, and the games for the 3rd and 4th positions at the playoffs.
The nineteenth edition of the FIFA World Cup will take place from June 11 to July 11, and it is the culmination of an elimination process that began in August 2007 and which involved a total of 204 FIFA national teams.
South Africa was chosen as the host of the cup after winning the bidding that also included Egypt, Libya-Tunisia (co-hosting) and Morocco. The South Africans obtained 14 votes, while the Moroccans obtained the remaining 10.
The Cup will be played in 10 (including Soccer City, Cape Town Stadium, and Moses Mabhida Stadium) venues across 9 cities, and it will count with 32 teams out of six confederations.
