2010 FIFA World Cup Photobook

2010 World Cup

Vuvuzelas, Fans, Stadiums, Energy, eShibobo, Jabulani, Zakumi, Laduuuuuuma!!!

Can you believe that it took me over 10 years before I finally got to designing this photobook? Our family are avid soccer fans and the World cup coming to South Africa was a really BIG DEAL.

Choosing images

This was the most difficult part of this project. Fortunately, I knew in 2010 that I wanted to make a photobook, and created a folder on my computer to hold the images. Each time we did something to do with soccer, I would copy the date folder with images into that photobook file. By the time I was ready to start, I had literally thousands!

The timeline of the photobook:

  • 2010 World cup posters
  • Preschool Functions and art
  • KZN WIB Networking functions
  • Filming by the Korean Broadcasting Station of local Durban school’s world cup activities
  • My son’s 6th Birthday
  • FIFA’s Official Match Programme
  • Opening game braai at Giba MTB Park
  • Group stage games at friends and families homes
  • Kwangjeon’s Tour Group from Korea – introducing and taking them around SA
  • The Korea vs Nigeria game at Moses Mabhida Stadium
  • Round of 16, Semi and Final games
  • Documenting my son’s avid World Cup Players Cards Collection
  • Newspaper and magazine clippings
  • Full game results including individually made goals scored and stadium records
  • an entire blog post
  • My son’s birthday invitations and soccer-themed parties from when he was 5 years old
  • Both son’s school football matches from 2009-2020
  • Local games we watched included Bafana Bafana, Afcon, Amazulu, Pirates, Chiefs and KJ’s participation in the Over 35 Westville Boys Old Boys Club team


So, if you have an amazing story to tell, begin by gathering all your photos, and memorabilia into one place and decide what format it will follow. I used a combination of chronology and themes.

  • 2010 World Cup Activities
  • Birthday Parties
  • Football Games over the years
