Construction for World Cup 2010 stadiums in sight

All stadiums will have a construction company on site by the end of the week in preparation for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) said in Johannesburg yester day.

LOC chairman Irvin Khoza, chief executive Danny Jordaan and Sports Minister Makhenkesi Stofile were briefing media after the LOC board meeting.

"All stadiums are well on course. The Fifa delegation was here, they inspected the stadiums and were satisfied," Khoza said.

Stofile said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the responsibility of Fifa, the Confederation of African Football, the African Union and the whole of Africa regarding staging a successful World Cup.
