You will want to put it into your calendar, the World Cup 2010 Final date and kick off time. The thirty two teams participating in the World Cup all have one ambition in mind, of lifting the World Cup. The World Cup 2010 Final date and kick off time, is scheduled for July 11th at 7.30pm GMT. That is when the most watched football match in the World will start in Johannesburg, exactly one month after the start of the tournament. The tournament itself is historic in that it is the first time that the World Cup has been held on the African continent, and Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium is the historic venue. The Stadium is located near Soweto, which means that a lot of the football fanatic locals will have easy access to the area, as they cheer on the local Bafana Bafana. While it was already a major international venue with a capacity of 80,000, the facelift it has been given to welcome the World at the 2010 FIFA World cup finals, means that it has now a capacity of nearly 95,000.

The Soccer City Stadium is simply stunning by the look of the pictures. It is not a new venue, it is one that has undergone a major face lift, and has the prestige of both opening and closing the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It was built in the 1980’s as South Africa wanted to make a big impression on the world as they returned from the international wilderness of years blocked out by political apartheid in the country. Hence Soccer Stadium City was built and it has already seen some historic days pass through its ground. It hosted South Africa’s historic African Cup of Nations triumph against Tunisia, in their attempt since being allowed back into the competition in the mid nineties. Nelson Mandela also held a rally there when he was famously released from his interment in prison. Its relative short history will now take another time honored turn, as it becomes the venue for the World Cup final. The stadium will host eight World Cup Fixtures in total, including the World Cup final date of July 11th.

One of the major World Cup Betting markets is picking the outright winner of the tournament. The online bookmakers will be bombarded with bets on the outright winner, the market in which European Champions Spain lead the way as favourites. They are being hotly perused in World Cup Odds by the mighty Brazil, with England and Argentina next in the list of odds. We all know who will be showing up in centre field on June 11th, which is the opening match between hosts South Africa v Mexico. But the big question on punter’s lips for the World Cup, is just who will be taking to the field on July 11th, the World Cup final date. Kick off time is scheduled for 7.30pm on that historic Sunday evening (GMT). So far, Brazil are the only nation to win the World Cup outside of their continent. Will Spain be able to join them? What of England’s chances of lifting the famed trophy at Soccer City Stadium.
