The event is aimed at streamlining provincial programmes for the tournament and will also ensure that the various stakeholders are updated on the province's state of readiness to host the tournament.

Provincial Premier S'bu Ndebele pointed to the fact that Indaba was an important "curtain-raiser" for the 2010 Preliminary Draw on November 25.

"We will use Indaba to further encourage stakeholders to go all out to ensure that the delegates and millions of viewers have a lasting positive impression of the host province."

Speakers include the Director-General of KwaZulu-Natal, Kwazi Mbanjwa, and a MATCH representative who will discuss Fifa's ticketing and hospitality plans.
