British Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

If you are planning to travel to South Africa for the World Cup next year, make sure you follow some basic tips for a safe and enjoyable stay.

The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office is kicking off its ‘Be on the Ball’ campaign, aimed at helping England fans heading to South Africa, with a press conference tomorrow. Gary Mabbutt, ex-England player, and one of the ambassadors for South Africa’s World Cup bid, will join the FCO in urging fans to take a few simple precautions before they travel. You can watch the press conference live on this page www.fco.gov.uk/worldcup tomorrow at 1030 GMT.

British Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice.


Working with the South African authorities and travel industry partners, the FCO has produced a dedicated world cup advice page on its website (www.fco.gov.uk/worldcup ) with information from rules of the road to accommodation issues and transport advice. This will be updated regularly as the World Cup approaches.
