WATCH: World Cup 2010 Opening Ceremony Live Stream (Free Online Video)
World Cup 2010 Live Stream: It’s just minutes until the 2010 FIFA World Cup kicks off with the exciting prospect of football’s best talents battling it out. The opening ceremony, which starts at 2:00 p.m. local time, will feature performances that highlight the best of African culture, focusing especially on the “six-pack” of African nations participating in the continent’s first World Cup.
The event will not only feature creativity but will also showcase the charm of new technologies. However, the organizing committee has not disclosed any information about it to keep the element of surprise.
Unfortunately, former South African President Nelson Mandela, who played a key role in the country’s bid to host the 32-nation tournament, cancelled plans to attend the ceremony. Zenani, one of his nine great-grandchildren, died in a car crash while returning from the tournament’s kick-off celebration concert Friday morning.
President Jacob Zuma has extended condolences to the Mandela family following the incident.
