2010 FIFA World Cup Programme Office

The City of Tshwane is one of the nine host cities for the 2009 Confederations Cup and the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Loftus Versfeld Stadium has been earmarked as the match venue for both events. For the venue to meet FIFA requirements, a number of improvements have been identified and will be completed by October 2008. The City of Tshwane has identified three venues for training venues, ie the Super Stadium in Atteridgeville, the HM Pitje Stadium in Mamelodi and the Giant Stadium in Soshanguve. The venues are being developed to FIFA's standards to ensure that world-class facilities are provided in the underdeveloped parts of Tshwane.

Both FIFA events are being used as conduits to fast-track the City of Tshwane's infrastructural developments for 2010 and beyond.

The Municipality has established a dedicated office tasked with ensuring the readiness of Tshwane to run successful events in 2009 and 2010. The office plays a coordination role and is headed by a chief executive officer.

A steering committee has been established that plays an advisory role to the 2010 office. The committee meets every month and is chaired by the Executive Mayor, Dr Gwen Ramokgopa. The committee is completed by five members of the Mayoral Committee, the Municipal Manager, the 2010 Programme Office CEO, a representative of Blue Bulls Company, a representative of the South African Football Association (Tshwane), a representative of Mamelodi Sundowns FC and a representative of SuperSport United.

The steering committee is supported by working groups that are individually co-chaired by the five members of the Mayoral Committee and representatives from external stakeholders' associations. The working groups are:

  • Promotion of Football
  • Safety, Security, Health and Environmental Affairs
  • Hospitality (Tourism and Entrepreneurship)
  • Marketing, Communication and Community Involvement
  • Infrastructure and Public Transport
