Every one was talking about Brazil vs Portugal.The Big one,Sunny Durban and warm weather and the Samba nad Portuguese fans in teh street.Obviously we had to check it out.Myself,Mo,Faaiz and Killa set off after the Italy vs Slovakia game to Durban. Our mode of transport.JHB to Durban via Eldo Coaches and returning with Greyhound.A few of the lads had match tickets and I didnt. I surely wasnt gonna pay R5000. We thought well try our luck. And off we went, leaving at 10pm Thursday night from park Station.The vibe was lekker,FIFA Volunteers,Brazilian Media all leaving by bus,noy our us unfortunately

Park station 10:pm

The Bus journey actually got off to a good start. It was late, Its always special with the lads and Killa entertained the entire evening. We stopped in Benoni picked up a Mexican believe it or not and set off to Durbs.The Mexicans are everywhere
Then almost halfway the freakin heating system packs in.And I mean its blistering cold.We had to survive like Bear Grills.It was like being locked in the freezer all night.And this was  a pretty descent Eldo Coach.Not like the Istima Bus with the Arrow on the side.So we tried to survive,arrived at 5:am,took a cab to Sun Coast and had a breakfast.Then we took a cab to my aunty in Westville to just relax and have a friday Lunch.Class

Moses Mabida at dawn from Sun Coast Casino

Relaxation and Luch and then we were off to the game.My connex were all geared up and ready
The Atmosphere at the stadium was fantastic. No better sight than Brazillian and Portuguese fans in Full flight.Singing ,Chanting.Tickets.500 US dollars.Too much for me.

Sun Coast Fan Park and Fan Mile

View of Moses Mabida from Sun Coast

As the other lads went in, Killa and I watched at the FAN PARK and FAN MILE in Sun Coast Casino.Lekker vibe,Full of fans and restaurants and bars  were packed.As for the game itself many fans we met said that it was disappointing. Was it worth the money?
The atmosphere was certainly worth it, got a glimpse of the stadium and last ten minutes and Moses Maboda on match day and at night was fantastic.
And the weather,the weather is awesome. Portuguese fans celebrated and drums rolled into the Durban night.It was Full moon and Spain vs Chille at the Fan Fest


A stark contrast to JHB of course because of the Ocean and Weather.Brazillian babes on the beach,fans on the beach,playing ball and watching footie and of couse lots of foreign fans donning their flags and country colors.We watched the Spain and Chile game here.Looked at some spectular scenery and experienced the Vibe.The whole beach front was buzzing and I felt like I was back at the Gunston only this time the crowd ws different and I wasnt the only one wearing a soccer top he he .

After the Fan Park well thats another story


  1. My sis instructed me about your website and the way great it
    is. She’s right, I am really impressed with the writing and slick design.
    It appears to me you’re just scratching the floor when it comes to what you'll be able to accomplish, but you’re off to a terrific begin!
