Campus in step with Soccer World Cup

09 November 2009

Phumeza Mdekazi Footloose: Phumeza Mdekazi shows UCT students the steps of Diski, the Soccer World Cup Dance.

The spirit of the 2010 Soccer World Cup arrived at UCT with a thump on Thursday 22 October, when a team from the marketing campaign, Beyond the 90 Minutes Road Trip, filmed students learning the steps to the Soccer World Cup dance.

Led by Commerce Students Council president Dinika Govender, the students put all their energies into Diski, as the dance has been dubbed.

The campaign links the soccer experience to the broader tourism experience in the Cape. It aims to facilitate stays in the region and help visitors enjoy the full range of experiences the city has to offer.

Acting dean of commerce Professor John Simpson said UCT was gearing up to do its bit towards the 2010 Soccer World Cup in Cape Town by offering comfortable, affordable residence accommodation, and transport to and from the airport, games, city hotspots and the winelands in rebranded Jammie Shuttles.
