World Cup team to visit Dar on Friday
The local organising committee of the 2010 Fifa World Cup will visit Dar es Salaam next week to promote the event which is set to kick off in South Africa next month.
South African High Commission to Tanzania First Secretary (political) Nokwazi Mtshali said on Friday that the team would make a day-long visit on May 21.
She said the committee would meet Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) officials, Minister for Information, Culture and Sports and South African High Commissioner to Tanzania before doing promotional activities in the city.
Nokwazi said the team would meet about 500 pupils from Dar es Salaam Primary schools at Shaaban Robert School to market the World Cup to them.
“Children will get World Cup promotional materials such as T-shirts, caps, Vuvuzela and many interesting gifts,” she said.
The campaign will also continue in other SADC countries and World Cup countries.
