Six South African football playing grannies will get the opportunity to experience the FIFA World Cup in Brazil set to commence next week.
The six grannies, who play for a Limpopo team called ‘Vakhegula Vakhegula’ which translates from their native tongue Tsonga, meaning ‘Granny’s Grannies’, will jet out of the country on Saturday, 14 June 2014.
The trip is organised by the beverage company, Coca Cola.
“Everyone joins together to celebrate the FIFA World Cup. It belongs to everyone, wherever you are, whoever you support and no matter your age. It truly is the World’s Cup and its best celebrated with everyone’s drink, Coca-Cola” said Marketing Director of Coca-Cola South Africa Sharon Keith.
According to Coca Cola, the six Gogos will not only be able to watch two World Cup group matches at the Maracana Stadium in Rio De Janeiro, but will also get to visit Sugarloaf Mountain, FIFA World Cup fan parks and taste the culture and cuisine of Brazil.
