The City of Cape Town has promised to keep road closures to a minimum during the World Cup and these will be limited to event days only. However, it should be noted that some roads will be pedestrian-only zones, while access to others will only be for vehicles with the necessary security clearance and event accreditation.
Pedestrian zones for the duration of the event fall mainly in the city centre. These include Darling Street between Adderley Street and Buitenkant Street, together with the side roads feeding into Darling – these will be closed for the full duration of the event to facilitate the activities associated with the FIFA Fan Fest.
If you don’t have a ticket to catch a game at the Cape Town Stadium, don’t despair! Cape Town has no shortage of fun, festive places to watch Africa’s first World Cup, but to experience the best party atmosphere, the obvious choice will be the official Fan Fest Park at the Grand Parade in the heart of the city.
Open every day of the competition from 11h00 to 23h00, all 64 matches will be screened free of charge to an estimated 25 000 fans against a backdrop of Table Mountain.
