Next Tuesday marks the 500-day countdown to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The event will be commemorated with a series of high profile events around the country.
On Monday, FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke will address a media conference in Johannesburg. The focal point of the day will be in Bloemfontein, where host city representatives will unveil the nine host city posters.
In addition, officials from the Italian Embassy will visit schools in Mangaung as part of the 2010 ’Adopt a Nation’ campaign.
Tuesday will see the launch of the 2010 Mass Participation Program in Kimberley and on Wednesday, LOC chief exectuve Danny Jordaan departs for Davos to address the World Economic Forum on South Africa’s preparations.
Should be an interesting week in South Africa.
500 days? Oh my! I REALLY need to get in gear ...
