FIFA Rejects Proposed Vuvuzela Ban At 2010 World Cup

Vuvuzela

Did anyone watching the 2009 Confederations Cup and feel like the games were being played inside a beehive due to the relentless and obnoxious buzzing sound? Yeah me too!

That noise was coming from a plastic instrument called the Vuvuzela which is to South African football what the “wave” is to American stadiums.

FIFA was considering banning the Vuvuzela at the 2010 World Cup due to complaints from players, coaches and broadcasters but just this weekend “FIFA have ruled out any action that would remove the vuvuzela from the stadiums at the 2010 World Cup.”

The rejection of the ban means Vuvuzelas will be given out at stadiums before each match so you better get used to the sound.

Gago Gives It Up For Kaka

Kaka was introduced to at least 50,000 Real Madrid fans at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Tuesday wearing Fernando Gago’s No. 8 shirt. The Argentina midfielder wore the number for the past two seasons but was more than happy to cede his number to the recent €65 million ($92 million) acquisition. Gago sounds like he is a good sport…and also knows his role on the team.
