DANNY Jordaan, the president of the 2010 World Cup organising committee, expects all stadiums for the tournament to be completed by October.
Jordaan is currently undertaking a promotional campaign for this yearâ€™s Confederations Cup.
He added that the tournament will allay any fears over preparations.
â€œFor the World Cup, we shall have six new stadiums and by October of this year all of the stadiums will be ready for the World Cup,â€ he said.
He also explained that the stadiums for the Confederations Cup have all been used before.
â€œThey are ready and have been used in previous events such as the 1995 Rugby World Cup,â€ he said.
â€œThese are Ellis Park in Johannesburg, Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, Loftus Versveld (Pretoria) and Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.â€
About 450,000 supporters are expected to travel to South Africa for the World Cup â€” down from the two million that travelled to Germany in 2006.
Jordaan said security would be a high priority with questions raised over the countryâ€™s crime record.
â€œWe have committed 1.3bn South African Rand (US$138m) to increase the police force,â€ Jordaan said.
â€œOur security teams worked at World Cup 2006, Euro 2008 and the Beijing Olympics.
â€œThe team has worked at 15 events and we are confident that our team can provide a safe environment.â€
He pointed out that security has not been a problem in the past for major sporting events held in South Africa.
â€œWe have hosted many events and all those events went off without problem.
â€œThe Rugby World Cup in 1995 passed without incident.
â€œAt the African Cup of Nations in 1996, there were no problems, and the Cricket World Cup in 2003 featured no problems.â€ â€” BBCSports.
