ACCRA - With the 26th MTN Africa Cup of Nations reaching its climax with the final on Sunday evening, the South African High Commission in Ghana is stepping up its campaign to create awareness of the 2010 World Cup.

The commission has invited an array of African soccer leaders attending the tournament to a presentation on the progress of the 32-nation quadrennial soccer event by the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee here today .

Danny Jordaan, the chief executive of the LOC who is also a member of the Confederation of African Football Organising Committee, will make a presentation. Ambassadors of other African countries based in Ghana have also been invited.

It was still unclear at the time of going to press whether CAF president Issa Hayatou would be there but the two World Cup ambassadors, Ghanaian legend Abedi Pele Ayew and Zambian great Kalusha Bwalya will be there.

Known as "South African Day", the presentation is one of the many events lined up by Rapu Molekane, the country's high commissioner to Ghana, to promote the 2009 Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup.

On Tuesday, Molekane opened a 2010 World Cup exhibition centre at the Accra mall where shoppers were given a tournament update. It closes tomorrow.
