Video | June 9, 2010
The world cup kicks off in six days time – but the benefits of this soccer spectacular will be felt for a long time afterwards, thanks to the innovative Solar public viewing area in Jericho, Brits. Next Friday June 11 2010, the world will hold its breath as the first ever soccer world cup to be held on the African continent kicks off at Soccer City , south of the city of gold, Johannesburg.

Less than two hours away,  the villagers of Jericho outside Brits in the North West province, will be glued to their TV screens watching history be made in the land of their birth. They will be sitting in front of the giant high quality TV screens coupled to theatre sound systems, all powered by solar energy and run by young members of the community who have been specially trained just for this.
