''Coming to you live from the Cape Town International Convention Centre'', are some of the most likely words millions of soccer fans around the globe will be subjected to by their respective media beaming the event. Not that they'll have anything to complain about, the prestigious event lined up for 4 December, will undoubtedly etch a mark in their memories - for it is that time again when we gather to see which of the 32 finalists will face each other at the mother of all tournaments.
And on another level it is the venue and its glittering platform that will enrich the experience with an ambient visual fest - and in this regard the South African organisers broke their backs to make it a world class event according to stringent FIFA specifications. Over 3,000 people worked day and night to ensure the stage is set for a smooth and spectacular draw, truly reflective of South Africa and Africa's aspirations and capabilities. Some of the dignitaries expected to attend include coaches of the qualifying teams such as Marcello Lippi (Italy), Vincente Del Bosque (Spain), Dunga (Brazil), Fabio Capello (England) & Carlos Queiroz (Portugal) among others.
