Edna Molewa, the North West premier, is happy with their preparations for the 2009 Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup.

Rustenburg is one of the five Confederations Cup and nine World Cup host cities .

Delivering the State of the Province address last Friday, Molewa said they were confident that the upgrading of the Royal Bafokeng Stadium will be completed in November.

"Let me declare loudly and boldly on behalf of our people, that as a province and country, we are firmly on track," she said.

"We have begun with roads construction and all other necessary preparatory work.

"The process we have made thus far tells one bold story - that indeed Africa's time has come and North West is ready."

The North West government is also upgrading stadiums in Mmabatho, Orkney, Olen Park in Potchefstroom and Olympia Park as legacy projects for the tournament.
