Soccer governing body the Federation for International Football Associations has given South Africa’s stadiums the final nod, 76 days before the start of the 2010 World Cup.

The Local Organising Committee has confirmed that FIFA has done its final examinations.

The inspection tour, which began at Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg on 16 March and ended in Green Point stadium in Cape Town on 25 March, saw all departments from both the 2010 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee South Africa (OC) and FIFA scrutinising the stadiums to ensure that they will be ready.

And at the end of the tour, all parties are confident that it is all systems go for 11 June 2010.

All stadiums have been toured across the country.

LOC CEO Danny Jordaan told the media that stadiums are all almost ready.

Five new stadiums have been built and five existing stadiums have been renovated.

According to Jordaan, the only issues that remain are final details such as parking for team busses and finalising security arrangements.
