Hyundai South Africa are showing football fans what bringing the ‘gees’ is all about by creating Hyundai Parks in three prime locations across the country. Durbanites can enjoy all the action as it unfolds at the stunning Hyundai Park at SUNCOAST which will screen all matches live for the duration of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™. “At previous tournaments around the world the Hyundai Parks have been the next best thing to watching the game at the stadium. We want South Africans and all visitors to the country to have the same experience,” says Alan Ross, CEO of Hyundai South Africa.
The Hyundai Park at SUNCOAST on the Sunstrip is situated within walking distance of the Moses Mabhida Stadium and the beachfront, making it the ideal place to be part of the 2010 action. Giant 40m², open-air screens, fun activities and entertainment will create a not-to-be-missed atmosphere while a number of exciting activities are set to enhance the experience. Fans will get to see some of the Hyundai Goodwill Balls that have travelled the world collecting signed messages of good luck from all participating countries in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ and there will be live webcam feeds from all other Hyundai Parks located around the world. The ‘Hyundai Fan Van’ will give fans the last minute opportunity to win tickets to a match taking place in their city that same day, with winners whisked to the stadium there and then to watch the match live. Adding to the gees will be the Fan of The Match competition running for the duration of the tournament. The most creative fan who really brings the gees to each Hyundai Park will have their picture uploaded onto the Hyundai SA Facebook page and fifa.com and will qualify for the Fan of the Match and could win the grand prize of an i10. Food and drinks will be on sale at the Hyundai Parks and DJs will ensure that the party continues throughout the day.
The Hyundai Park at SUNCOAST is just one of three sponsored Hyundai Parks. There are also Hyundai Parks in Cape Town and Johannesburg, located at the V&A Waterfront and the Italian Club in Bedfordview respectively. Hyundai have a number of initiatives set to enhance fans world cup experience including Hyundai’s world record breaking vuvuzela, located on Cape Town’s infamous unfinished highway. The giant vuvuzela will sound its horn at the start of each match, adding a unique South African flavour to the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
