Making a beautiful noise for the beautiful game
Vuvuzela South Africa is a blog dedicated to a meter long plastic trumpet blown at soccer games in South Africa. As we look back on the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup, South African football supporters still feel the excitement of the World Cup Fever of the first African World Cup. We know that although our team didn’t make a great showing, they did us proud, and our vuvuzelas – well they were heard around the world.
If you haven’t heard a Vuvuzela, a Knysna journalist Martin Hatchuel describes the sound as “the blatter of Vuvuzelas” in honor of Fifa President Sepp Blatter who so valiantly came to the rescue of the Vuvuzela when it presence at the 2010 Soccer World Cup matches was challenged during the recent Confederations Cup.
On Media 24 he said: In showing his support for the Vuvuzelas, Blatter said: “Banning them, no. In fact I will blow one of the vuvuzelas at my press conference in Johannesburg on Friday.
Vuvuzelas make the South Africa game come alive. It is part of the local culture and adds to the flavour of SA soccer.”
