Mayor Plato to brief media on first event at Green Point’s Cape Town Stadium
Cape Town’s Executive Mayor Alderman Dan Plato invites members of the media to attend a briefing on the eve of the first event to be held at the new Cape Town Stadium.
The purpose of the briefing is to provide details of the event itself – a friendly soccer match between Santos and Ajax on Saturday January 23, 2010 – and to introduce the media to the stadium operator SAIL Stadefrance. The operator will be hosting at least two events in the stadium in the build-up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in June 2010. The first event has a capacity of 20 000 and is already sold out.
Date: Wednesday January 20, 2010
Venue: Mixing Zone, Level 00, Cape Town Stadium
Directions: From the new raised circle on Western Boulevard, turn down towards McDonalds, then left along Fritz Sonnenberg, which takes you to Parking Entrance One in the stadium. From there you will be directed to your parking bay.
