World Cup Team Arrival Dates
The arrival dates of all
32 31 teams not named South Africa for the World Cup have begun to leak into the South African press, which is odd as they were supposed to be announced, but perhaps the leakage before the announcement is for very good reason: The first team arrives tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow – the 26th of May.
It’s near impossible to believe the tournament could be creeping so close, but the Soccerroos have booked the OR Tambo International Airport for their arrival on Wednesday evening, becoming to first team to land in South Africa after that short hop from Australia.
The remaining arrival dates after the jump.
There’s little interesting about the actual arrival dates short of Spain, who will be showing up fashionably late, after the opening ceremonies. And if memory serves, they showed up fashionably late to Euro 2008 as well.
Clearly you have to stick with what works.
