    Soccer Cup Packages, Anyone?

    Has anyone booked any packages for the soccer world cup in South Africa? Something including airfare, hotel, game tickets and airport-hotel-stadium transport?
    I would like to go for a a couple of games, if possible and was wondering if anyone has any experiences with particular websites/travel companies?

    I only wish, going to have to wait until 2018 or 2022 for me, assuming the US wins the bid for one of those years.

    I wish I could go but I don't think I could.

    From a former colleague who is South African and used to live to J-Burg , it is advised that you make sure that you have good transportation whenever you're there due to crime.

    You want to go half way around the world to watch soccer?

    Not only to watch soccer. Soccer isnt even in my top 5 sports. But South Africa, and the madness that comes with world cup soccer would be fun to experience.

    Nice job hos. It took only four posts for the typical "soccer is dumb" post. You stay classy.

    Would love to, but can't. I really wish I had gotten to go in 1994. I saw fans all over Chicago's downtown, but never went to a game.

    If you go, fly out of St. Louis. This way if you haven't experienced enough excitement with the ball kicking, you can go to the Bowling Hall of Fame to top yourself off.
