2010 FIFA World Cup Official Emblem
The 2010 identity is unique, vibrant and dynamic, graphically encapsulating the African continent while more intimately dipping into South Africa’s rich and colorful heritage for inspiration. The graphic figure strikes a resemblance to the earliest rock art paintings for which our country is also famous. This figure is caught in mid-action performing a bicycle kick – a style of play that captures the flair of African football.
The figure is lucid, energetic and indirectly illustrates an inherent passion for the beautiful game. It is kicking a football upwards – an invitation from Africa to other nations of the world to join the game. The actual ball is a modern representation of a football, suggesting that it belongs to FIFA. And for the first time ever, this ball that has traveled across the globe will touch African soil. The colorful backdrop behind the figure represents the South African national flag. The ‘swishes’ extend upwards, from south to north, reaching out to the world. They embody the energy, diversity and fiery passion of our country, and they symbolize the rise of the rainbow nation. The typeface is an original creation. It reflects our personality and reinforces the idea that in South Africa we do things uniquely. It is playful, naïve and free-spirited. It is also bold, welcoming and friendly.
2010 FIFA World Cup South African Party
The South Africa 2010 party got under way in style last night with a joyous, colorful and truly African FIFA World Cup™ Kick-off Celebration Concert in Soweto, Johannesburg. Held in the football heartland that is Orlando Stadium, home of iconic club side Orlando Pirates, the concert featured a host of stars including Shakira, Alicia Keys, K’Naan and the Black Eyed Peas. A wide variety of acts took to the stage but the abiding theme was one of celebration for the African continent with the event broadcast across the world. The countdown clock introducing the three-hour extravaganza finally hit zero and with it came a cacophonous roar as seemingly thousands of South Africa flags were lifted aloft creating an ocean of color among the estimated 30,000 in attendance. Joining the countless Rainbow Nation colors were a broad cross-section of national flags representing every corner of the globe, as the many visitors in attendance took the opportunity to enjoy Africa’s impressive ability to turn on a party. FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and South African President Jacob Zuma jointly opened the concert after the early acts. As the evening progressed a cavalcade of football stars took to the stage between performances including former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe, Franz Beckenbauer, Christian Karembeu, Quinton Fortune, Socrates and Jay Jay Okocha. Another joyous presenter was Archbishop Desmond Tutu decked out in Bafana Bafana supporter gear and who introduced a video presentation on Nelson Mandela with trademark enthusiasm. The large crowd rarely dropped their energy levels and their infectious enthusiasm was palpable. “I have been to a lot of concerts but I have never been to a concert like this,” said ebullient Johannesburg resident Khensami Majola, just as K’Naan took to the stage to perform his poignant song ‘Waving Flag’. “It is amazing fun; we are having a huge jam. It is a perfect presentation of Africa – north, south, east and west.” The concert drew to a spectacular conclusion with Colombian pop princess Shakira in impressive form. She was joined on stage by Freshlyground for a rendition of ‘Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)’, the Official FIFA World Cup theme. Another proud concert-goer was Soweto local William Oosthuizen who spoke with pride as he took a rare break from dancing. “I am very proud and I am enjoying this immensely,” he said. “Beauty in the heart of Soweto. This is what Africa is all about. Sport has a unifying factor and it’s all about people enjoying themselves.”
2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Poster
The official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ poster was unveiled on 23 November 2007 following a board meeting of the Local Organizing Committee in Durban. The poster was designed by the South African creative agency Switch, who also created the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ emblem. The design beat three rivals in a public vote held throughout South Africa from 11 September to 30 September 2007. As the lucky winner in a lottery among all of the voters, South African Marilyn Rhoda was presented with a prize of two 2010 FIFA World Cup™ tickets provided by official sponsor MTN. “Portraying a country in the shape of a man heading a ball is a new idea with potent symbolism. For me, football is all about emotion and passion, which is why I was particularly attracted to this poster. It invites the world to join in the celebration of the greatest football event on earth, while highlighting the pride and passion of the African continent and her people. It represents the African dream come true. The South Africans made a good selection for the poster, which will represent their country all the way up to 2010,” said FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter. For the first time in football history, the FIFA World Cup™ will be hosted on African soil from 11 June to 11 July 2010. The artwork depicts a celebration of the African continent as well as everyone who calls it home. The simple and yet iconic rendering is symbolic of the relationship between football and Africa and captures a sense of excitement, awe and aspiration. It also reflects the positive impact that the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ will have on Africa. Africa is the “hero” of the official event poster. The unique shape of the continent almost naturally lends itself to the shape of a man’s profile, while the face represents every single African supporter from Morocco in the north, Gambia in the east, Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia in the west to South Africa in the south. “The official poster symbolizes the important role of football in the history, tradition and culture of the African continent. It’s also recognition that football has always been an inspiration for a better future and a generator of hope in Africa. It recognizes that Africa has a football face and a football heart,” explained Danny Jordaan, CEO of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Organizing Committee. Bright, vibrant and celebratory, the colors of the poster are inspired by the South African flag, but also draw upon the African continent. The strong yellow background symbolizes the sun as the source of warmth, energy and life. From a total of 16 creative entries, all submitted by South African-based agencies, three proposals had been pre-selected for the public vote by South African residents. The jury was made up of FIFA General Secretary Jérôme Valcke, CEO of the 2010 South African Local Organizing Committee Danny Jordaan, Minister in the South African Presidency Essop Pahad, Deputy Finance Minister Jabu Moleketi, South African playwright and author Wally Serote, and artist and director of the Vega School of Brand Communication Gordon Cook. Following on from the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ in Germany, this was the second time that residents of the host country have been actively involved in the selection of the official event poster.
