Old and New Names of Host Cities Included for 2010 World Cup

New and Old Names Mangaung (Bloemfontein), Tshwane (Pretoria) and Nelson Mandela Bay (Port-Elizabeth) included for 2010 World Cup

Following engagement and consultation with the cities, the Local Organising Committee Board and FIFA have agreed that the name changes proposed by various Host Cities be used within South Africa whilst outside of the country a combination of both the old and new names will be used.

Host cities affected by the name changes are Pretoria, who’s new name will be Tshwane, Bloemfontein, which is being renamed Mangaung, and Port-Elizabeth which new name will become Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

For these South African 2010 host cities both old and new names
will appear on the soccer tickets issued for the 2010 World Cup tournament.

The new name will be on the ticket, with the old name behind it between brackets: Tshwane (Pretoria), Mangaung (Bloemfontein), Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (Port-Elizabeth).

This positive step allows for the effective global promotion of the new names of these South African cities, while at the same time providing a good opportunity to engage visitors to South Africa in transformation taking place within the country.
