Gor fans can blow easy as Fifa now recognises ‘vuvuzelas’

Published on 18/06/2009

Gor Mahia fans can rest assured that the Vuvuzelas (plastic horns that fans blow in stadiums) their fans have been ‘trafficking’ from South Africa are Fifa certified.

A Fifa list of prohibited items to the stadiums hosting the Confederations Cup matches allows the use of Vuvuzelas but bans megaphones like those used by Sofapaka, hooters or gas powered horns. AFC Leopards might be interested in the ban list too. Cans, jugs, alcohol or any liquids except those sold inside the venues are banned.

Mathare United fans perhaps might be interested in the fact that dogs are banned.


In case you may not have noticed, several venues hosting the Confederations Cup have two names for instance Tshwane/Pretoria.

It is silent battle to wrestle back what was taken away by the whites, a fan who identified himself as Khoza, told FeverPitch. Bloemfontein is Mangaung. The stadium at Rustenburg is called Royal Bafokeng.


When people list travelling as one of their hobbies you wonder exactly if they actually enjoy it. This is because even how a thing like “Traffic lights’’ is called, may cause problems of monumental proportions. In South Africa it is called ‘Robot’. In one of the instances when I sought direction my guide told me to move on and after two robots I turn right. Believe me I trudged on hoping to see the robots I thought I knew.
