Not long to go now and if you happen to make the decision to spend a few days in Johannesburg rather than use your spare time to visit some of the more beautiful places in South Africa, you are going to need to know where the fan parks are.
Much like Johannesburg has two stadiums, the city will also have two fan parks and like all the other fan parks throughout South Africa, they will be open from 10am on the morning of the match and will stay open late.
There will be live entertainment and you'll be able to buy some traditional African food and drink and all matches will be shown.
The main fan park will be based at Elkah Stadium in the township of Rockville and will have room for 40,000 fans.
The secondary fan park, created mostly for local supporters, will be based at Innesfree Park and is close to the Alexandra Township and Sandton Central Business District and will have room for a further 20,000 people.
Our advice is very specific; if you have the chance to visit Cape Town or Durban or anywhere else in South Africa - take it.
Johannesburg is great for work, but is a huge city and you really don't want to find yourself stuck here as there are so many more options and if you know in advance you are going to be stuck in Johannesburg, you really should plan to do something better.
