    Was talking to some friends this weekend and this appears to be the goal. 3-4 weeks in South Africa for exploration, fun and the World Cup!

    anyone else going to try and make this trek?

    2014 is more plausable for such a young, broke fellow such as myself.

    I'll just be buying FOX Soccer channel like I did in '06.

    I am trying to set aside enough to get there, but it is not looking good at the moment.

    There is plenty of time to prepare people. You guys have a defeatest attitude. We are talking 2 years. I understand if you don't like the soccer, but why not make an attempt at the ultimate!!

    It's possible if you want it to be.

    Inspirational words Fax, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to make it to South Africa for WC (it would mean skipping coachella!)

    But you can bet your bottom that i'll be in Brazil for 2014.

    Given current financial situation, I am opting for the more realistic goal of Euro 2012. I'm sure Ukraine is lovely in its own way.

    First lot goes on sale in February. So almost a year and a half in advance. Keep checking the link I posted for ticket info.

    I'm fine with just traveling to a soccer loving country anywhere when the world cup is going on. Just get the fuck out of the US and be with people who understand.

    You would be buying tickets out of sheer randomness. You wont know who is playing who until they do the draw for all the groups.... So I dont think ticket sales are that far in advance, maybe like the opening match which is the host country, and the final and 3rd place match.

    The first phase of ticket sales will take place in February 2009 according to FIFA.

    This actually works very well. I was in Paris during France's run to the '06 Final. Holy shit, watching the games in the bars and then taking part in the pandemonium after they kept on winning was insanity!

    My hotel was about a half block away from the Place de la Bastille and The Opéra de Paris. Every match after France won the five lane roundabout would be taken over by a huge mob with people climbing onto the base of the Column de Juliette singing, dancing, chanting, waving flags, lighting off flares, converging on any car foolish enough to try and make its way though the people. So much fun.

    Anyway. What gunz was saying is a good way to get the World Cup feel and excitement in another country even if you don't make it to South Africa (because have you looked at ticket prices to South Africa... not cheap).

    Yep. I was in Dublin and then London for the Europcup. Didn't go to anything live obviously but in Dublin the spanish took the streets with flags and partied all night. It was awesome to be around that energy. Same thing at the pubs and hostel in London. People were very excited as was I. Great stuff.

    Watching football in pretty much any other country is sooooooooo much better than any sport in the US.

    *Edit* Except for Boston when the Sox are in the series and NCAA football/basketball championships around the winning school's campus. Those get pretty close, not quite there, but close.
