2010 South Africa, World cup: Cape Town (not Bafana Bafana) may lose semifinal!
Seemingly not all Capetonians are keen on hosting the world cup semifinal, at least not in a revamped Greenpoint stadium. The “Greenpoint common association” seeks to block the reconfiguration of the commons area including a golf course and football clubs, with court action.
If it goes to court, the delayed start may well put us out of the running for a 2009 completion, which is the condition of the event organizers. No No No!
The stadium plan is a very ambitious one and will most definitely transform the whole area, which at present is quite higgledy-piggledy.
