CAPE TOWN — The hottest ticket this summer isn’t a trip to Saint-Tropez, Capri, the Greek islands or the Hamptons — it’s the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, which kicks off on June 11.
One of the biggest events in international sports, the World Cup takes place every four years, with millions of devoted football (also known as soccer) fans around the world following every game during the five-week tournament. It is said the World Cup is even bigger and more popular than the Olympics. This is the first time in the cup’s 70-year history that it will take place on African soil, and the football frenzy is definitely reaching fever pitch in South Africa.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
