Fans blow vuvuzelas (plastic horns), a staple of South African football, at the opening match at Cape Town's new 2010 FIFA World Cup football stadium. One fan also carries a small television, joking that he will be able to replay any controversial incidents in the match. 20,000 fans flocked to the stadium for its first public event since completion in December 2009. The stadium seats 68,000 and the first test event was used to check that all systems, transport, security, staffing and logistics worked satisfactorily.
