COPA Camp Players to Tour 2010 FIFA World Cup Stadium

The COPA Coca-Cola players who are currently on a week-long boot camp in Pretoria, South Africa, will get a chance to visit South Africa’s iconic World Cup Stadium, FNB Stadium, also referred to as Soccer City Stadium.

The stadium which is considered as Bafana Bafana’s de facto 'national stadium' for football was the venue of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final pitting Spain and Netherlands and also hosted the opening match between South Africa and Mexico.

The 94,736 capacity stadium located in Johannesburg has become South Africa's go-to stadium for major international competitions and recently hosted the Africa Cup of Nations which ended in February.

“COPA Coca-Cola is about laying the platform for young players and bringing them closer to their heroes. We believe a visit to Soccer City will make them feel like the heroes they are and prompt them to work even harder to play in this stadium in the future,” said Christine Maina, Coca-Cola’s Marketing Assets and Experiential Manager.

The FNB stadium is the home of PSL giants Kaizer Chiefs and is the preferred venue for the Soweto derby matches involving Chiefs and their arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.

After the Soccer City stadium tour, the players will be taken to Gold Reef City, an amusement park with different games and adventurous activities before they travel back to the camp and get ready for the tournament proper on Friday.
