SAFA is calling on football fans to share their memories to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™
It has been almost 10 years since the football world stood still and turned its attention to South Africa and the African continent for the historic 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
Much was expected as Africa hosted its first FIFA World Cup over 100 years since the formation of FIFA, and South Africa did not disappoint, as it hosted a fantastic celebration of football, humanity and global celebration.
The tournament, at which Spain won its maiden FIFA World Cup, is still regarded as one of the best and most successful versions ever of the world’s biggest sporting event.
So many fantastic, lifelong memories were made and from 11 June to 11 July 2020 the South African Football Association is calling on South Africans, the rest of Africa and football lovers the world over to mark the 10-year anniversary of this landmark event by sharing your memories, pictures and videos using the hashtag #my2010memories.
The online campaign will run from 11 June 2020 – 10 years after the opening match at which Siphiwe Tshabalala scored the tournament’s sensational opening goal – to 11 July 2020 – 10 years after Spain lifted the trophy – on all SAFA and Bafana Bafana social media platforms.
We look forward to seeing your memories of this special time in our country’s history and will share further details in the build-up to this milestone.
