5 February 2010

Those hoping to secure a room in a South African hotel for the football World Cup this year could be in luck, it has been claimed.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Charles Starmer-Smith noted that Match - the Fifa organisation dealing with lodgings for the event - has opened up 441,695 nights in hotels.

Country manager for South African Tourism, Lebo Mokhesi, said: "The move is good news for British football fans keen to see the action first hand and to take advantage of additional accommodation options at sensible prices."

According to Mr Starmer-Smith, 66 per cent of the match tickets for the World Cup have been sold already, with 41,000 UK supporters landing seats.

Another 400,000 are to go on the market on 9 February and 7 April, he added.

The Twelve Apostles hotel in South Africa was recently shortlisted as one of the best places to stay overnight in the world by Condé Nast Traveler.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19601028-ADNFCR
