The Project 2010 cache series purpose is to track the progress of the stadiums to be build or upgrade, this cache with Loftus Versveld in particular. It will be interesting to make visual record of this progress.
Hopefully some more caches will be created at similar sites across the country, and will all linked together.
There will be (based on most recent press statements) ten stadiums used in the Soccer World Cup.
Three existing stadiums in Gauteng will be upgraded. Soccer City (FNB stadium), Ellis Park In Johannesburg and Loftus Versveld in Pretoria. The Royal Bafokeng stadium in North West will be upgraded, as will be Vodacom Park in Mangaung (Bloemfontain) in the Free State.
Five new stadiums will be build or rebuild. In Limpopo, the Peter Mokana stadium in Polokwane will host the 2010 games. New stadiums will be build at Mbombela in Mpumalanga, and the Nelson Mandela Metro (encompassing Port Elizabeth) in the Eastern Cape.
King Park stadium in Durban will be rebuild for the event, and in the Western Cape, Cape Town’s Green Point stadium will be rebuild.
When finding the cache you need to take a minimum of two photo’s of Loftus Versveld. One from the cache site and the second from any other angle such as the main entrance.
To the cache. The cache is very close to the current building activities at Loftus Versveld. As no building plans nor artists impressions are available the extend to the upgrades are currently unknown. Currently we placed a micro at the above coordinates, it is intended to place a small or regular cache closer to the actual Soccer World Cup once the building operations are completed.
The area is available 24/7, but not considered save at night, so don’t try.
DO NOT attempt the cache when there is a function on at the stadium (the hordes will notice you)
DO NOT attempt the cache if the metro police are parked nearby, they will see you and become suspicious
NOTE: Due to the nature of the area, if you linger in a spot the muggles will investigate when you leave, so do not linger near the cache if you wait for muggles to move on. Be carefull not to take it completely off the tree, just let it hang and retrieve the log. Before replacing (please in the same spot as found, we do not want it to get missing again), make sure it is properly shut and that no muggles are watching.
Currently other caches available in the series:
