The FIFA 2010 World Cup falls on the same dates as AnthroCon 2010. June 24th - 27th there will be a total of about 12 games to be watched by those in the fandom showing their support for whatever nation that may be playing. :3

In a sense. A FanZone rather to broadcast the games live from South Africa. Which happens to be a cradle of Stone Age civiliazation.

What myself and colleagues and I have planned is to bring the excitement of the World Cup to AnthroCon. Youtube a few "World Cup Fan" videos and you will see why such a spectacle would be welcome at such a crazy venue.

But I don't support it. I don't want football anywhere near Anthrocon.

The World Cup 2010 is taking place in South Africa but the teams are staying at the same hotel as Anthrocon, they have a layover at Anthrocon, Anthrocon will be held in South Africa too...?

Really confused how the two relate in any way.

No, no, no...XD The teams themselves will be in South Africa doing what they do best.

There will be a FanZone/Exhibition Venue in concurrence of the convention to view the games live, thanks to the courtesy of Westin Hotel Audio/Visual staff.

Plans are set in motion of how this will all be made more clear in the beginning of the next year.

It will be great. I guarantee it. ;)

VALEU BRASIL!

oh, should I bring my World Cup '06 and '02 scarves with me? :)
It took me a moment but I think I get it. Kind of like the international spirit fostered by carrying country flags during this year's fursuit parade, we can support our nations playing in South Africa during AnthroCon next year.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. There are over 3000+ attendees to Anthrocon and I am sure there will be some who are interested in the event.

And yes. I think it WILL BE GREAT. :3

YA MPAPELA!!

I do enjoy watching the World Cup. It was grand in '06 working at an Italian restaurant with an Italian-born hostess just about glued to the games. ;)

Now, in '04 we did do a "Summer Games" them to commemorate the Olympics, to note.

Also, the animal-filled video there is apt, if overtly promotinal. ;) Thanks for sharing!

Be glad to have you there. Anyone you're hoping see compete and win in South Africa? ;)

If I happen to be at AC next year I would be all for this. Hands down I'd rather stay in the con confines and not have to miss the games or leave the site to find a pub or sports bar that will televise the matches.

Besides, being among other furs that dig the sport is a bonus and makes for a much better time being among them, than the unknowns in an unknown bar in a city you may only visit once a year if that.

Cheers!
