'Sport in Gauteng can bring people together, it's another way of socialising going to a World Cup match was wonderful and I saw the reaction in people's faces, it was fantastically exciting.' Emily, domestic worker

'I always watch soccer on TV but have never been to a stadium.'

'Gauteng is always a trendsetter – going to soccer games by train is a real success for the province!'

'Gauteng's rich cultural and urban spirit is matched only by its unlimited access to sporting facilities and activities, catering to virtually every sport lover’s interests.' Peshe, property portfolio manager
'We go to Loftus and Ellis Park to watch the Lions…the Lions… and the Lions. We also will go to any international games or if we get free tickets (because there is always good food involved). I guess I am a sports fan because I also watch cricket at the Wanderers. We watch a lot of sport on TV. I think sport is a good thing for the province. It keeps spirits high and builds unity.'
'As the 2010 World Soccer Cup grew near I was preparing myself for time on my couch viewing as many games as possible on my TV, but this rapidly changed as I was invited by my sons to three games in Johannesburg. I wondered at my ability to cope with the vuvuzelas! What wonderful experiences of events well organised in magnificent stadia, slick transport, excited crowds, thrilling games, and lively vuvuzelas. It was great to be there!' Athol, former olympic athlete
