2010

Compared to the 2010 excursions we did the last time we had to change a couple of things. The Green Point Stadium Visitors Centre was closed due to the roof constructions and unfortunately, we also could not visit the late Joe Mthimka!
Nevertheless, we put together an interesting week. Firstly, we met Sizwe, a passionate soccer player and co- founder of the website www.thesoccerpages.com. After an interesting introduction on Signal Hill where we could see the construction of the new stadium in Green Point we went to the Sea Point promenade for a soccer clinic. Yes, after short instructions from Sizwe we played soccer according to the given tactics. That was lots of fun- even though it was hot hot… but not only Gavin and Aaliya (our teachers) were sweating…

On our second Language Excursion, we visited the District Six Museum for its special Soccer Exhibition. It linked in nicely with Sizwe’s stories from the day before. We saw lots of pictures about soccer in the early days and learned a lot about the foundation of the professional Cape Town football clubs. The next day, on our last excursion for this week, we visited Ajax Cape Town (check out their website here!) one of the two Cape Town clubs playing in the South African Premier Soccer League. We met Ajax Marketing Manager Mike Meiers and he showed us all sport facilities.

All in all, we had a great time!
