South Africa FIFA World Cup cover!

South Africa has the honor to host this coming FIFA World Cup, scheduled to take place between 11 June and 11 July 2010. This will be the first time that the tournament has been hosted by an African nation, after South Africa beat Morocco and Egypt in an all-African bidding process. This decision left the Oceania Football Confederation as the only confederation yet to host the FIFA World Cup.

To commemorate the special occasion, South Africa postal service (SAPO) recently released a minature sheet for its International Airmail Small Letter postage. This lovely M/S can be seen on the latest cover sent by Dudley Hazell. Thank you so much!
