Football fever is running rife across Joburg – and the Rand Show 2010 is no different. If vuvuzelas give you vooma and you love shouting “laduma”, then the Soccer Festival at the Rand Show 2010 is the place for you. Adults and youngsters alike can take part in their own celebrations of the Beautiful Game, just weeks before the FIFA World Cup 2010 hits town.
In fact, the Rand Show 2010 will allow visitors to flex their own soccer skills with five-a-side matches taking place every day from 6 to 8 April on a special inflatable pitch. There’s also a Speed Cage, where you can test your goal speed, and Target Football, a game where your success comes down to your accuracy and ball skills. Have a half-time break, then try out Power Save, a game where you and a friend can practice your shooting and goalkeeping tricks –find out if you have what it takes to be the next Ronaldo!
Younger football enthusiasts can fine-tune their game with the help of real-life soccer stars. Ten members of the Professional Football Players Association will be attending the Rand Show 2010’s Soccer Festival to help kids get to grips with ball skills. They’ll even be able to take part in soccer tryouts under the eagle eye of Julius Sono. All events are free of charge, and open to all members of the family.
The enormous variety of activities at the Soccer Festival, as well as at the rest of the show, prove that the Rand Show 2010 – which runs from 1-11 April – has something for everyone. You’ll definitely score at this Easter’s ultimate family event.
