2010 World Cup Draw - African Style
Today the mother city of South Africa, Cape Town will host the draw for the 2010 World Cup.
This promises to be a vibrant traditional African affair welcoming the competition to the continent for the first time in history.
The Grammy award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir, Benin's singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo and one of South Africa's greatest music exports Johnny Clegg will be entertaining at this nail biting event.
With five Projects Abroad destinations making the cut this tournament is set to be an exciting time for the Projects Abroad community.
Having spent time in Africa I know the attitude towards football and I am sure this tournament is going to have an incredible atmosphere, lets hope we stay in long enough to enjoy it!
With a variety of worthwhile volunteer projects in Cape Town what better time to give something back and enjoy the world's favourite game.
Tune in to BBC2 at 5.15pm today to catch the draw as it happens.
