Less than 24 hours after securing their place at next June's FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa, Germany on Sunday named a base near the city of Pretoria for the finals.

The luxury Velmore Hotel will only be finished next month, but the German Football Association (DFB) have already booked an entire wing for the tournament which runs from June 11 until July 11.

The hotel, which has 90 rooms, is in Centurion, a town with a population of 280,000 located between the South African capital and Johannesburg, not far from five of the ten venues.

Germany coach Joachim Low and team manager Oliver Bierhoff visited the hotel during the FIFA Confederation Cup 2009 and the reservation was confirmed in the wake of Germany's 1-0 win over Russia on Saturday 10 October.

The victory in Moscow means Germany now have an unassailable lead at the top of Group 4 and will find out their pool and group stage oppponents in South Africa when the draw is made in Cape Town on Decmber 4.
