A new initiative to lay artificial pitches in SA cities which will not be hosting 2010 matches has been launched in Pietermaritzurg, South Africa. 2010 Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan attended the sod-turning ceremony at the Edendale Stadium Wednesday. The entire pitch surface will be replaced with artificial turf within the next six weeks. The legacy programme was announced by 2010 sponsor, First National Bank, which said the aim was to ensure as many places as possible benefited from the event. FNB has identified grounds in three provinces – KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape and Northern Cape – so far. FIFA is currently installing artificial turf surfaces throughout the continent as part of its ‘Win in Africa, With Africa’ initiative. Panapress.
