Eight of our FIFA.com Club members enjoyed the trip of a lifetime earlier this month after winning our Activity Meter Challenge. Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their time in South Africa, which included watching a 2010 FIFA World Cup™ semi-final.
“What a great experience! Durban was amazing! The match was awesome! The people in South Africa are so kind! I loved the trip and I would like to thank FIFA for giving me such a great opportunity!”

“Dear FIFA, thank you so much for this once-in-a-lifetime-trip. It was the most incredible experience to be in South Africa during the World Cup and to see a semi-final match. My town's local newspaper did an article about me and my trip and while I was gone, a nearby city ran the story on the nightly news.
"I've almost become a sort of local celebrity here because of my winnings. Everything went smoothly in South Africa and we didn't have any problems. I would describe my experience as: amazing, incredible, enlightening, and life-changing. Once again, thank you so much for this dream trip!”*
“I didn’t expect to be there at the FIFA World Cup even when my name was printed on the website. However everything worked out and it was a dream come true. I had never been to watch a World Cup match live. My friend and I really enjoyed the game and we had a great time in Cape Town!”
“It was awesome, everything was perfectly organised and I thank you a lot!”
"My trip was full of discoveries and surprises. I went to South Africa for a semi-final and was hosted like a king. The trip was a little tiring but really rewarding. I enjoyed very much my six days out there. It was short but full of emotions and discoveries. I’m still with the fairies. I still can’t realise that I was at the World Cup!"
