World cup final


Hi all

This may seem like a stupid question...but, at the world cup final in South Africa would the programs that they sell at the door be in Spanish, Dutch or English???

I want to buy my Spanish, football fanatic, friend one, which I have seen on ebay, but the only version is in English... Is this because South Africa speak English? or would they be selling Dutch versions at the Holland entrance and Spanish at the Spains gates?

HELP my mind boggles!?!?!?!

I believe South Africa uses several languages, including English and Dutch. Not sure if Spanish is one of them though. Have sent text to a friend out there to find out.

A good question deserves an answer. - fontanero, JUL 8, 2010

I'm told mostly English, but many other languages available in "unofficial" form.

There seems to be a lot of "copies" to be had.

I'm told there's a thriving black market. - fontanero, JUL 8, 2010
