热情豪迈的7月,世界杯的精彩赛事是否正霸占着你的屏幕呢?对足球迷来说,南非的足球之都德班可是个朝圣的好地方,德班的摩西·马比哈达体育场正是2010年南非世界杯的举办场地喔。

This vibrant and passionate month of July is heated up by the FIFA World Cup matches. If you’re a football fan, the football capital of South Africa – Durban is also a mecca you cannot miss! The city is home to the Moses Mabhida Stadium, where FIFA World Cup matches were held in 2010.

除了世界杯,7月还有另外一个让德班沸腾起来的赛事,那就是即将于7月7日在德班举行的赛马盛事“沃德肯德班七月节”!这项赛马盛会发源于1897年7月,至今已经是第121年。每年7月的第一个星期六,都有约55000名观众到场观赛,其中更是不乏高人气的南非音乐家、时尚名人,“沃德肯德班七月节”堪称是非洲大陆上最盛大的赛马、时尚、娱乐嘉年华!

Apart from the FIFA World Cup, the Vodacom Durban July scheduled on July 7 is another hit in this exciting month! The Vodacom Durban July is revered as the grandest carnival of horse-racing, fashion and entertainment that can be traced back to July 1897, and the 121st event will be held this year. On every first Saturday of July, the carnival attracts about 55,000 audiences, including popular South Africa musicians and fashion celebrities.
