Technology & Convergence

FIFA has set up a distribution partnership with SONY, Ster-Kinekor and Nu-Metro cinemas around the world so that soccer fans can enjoy key matches on 3D.

Ster-Kinekor's 3D world cup games have been shown on a six-metre screen at outlets such as Sandton (Johannesburg), Cavendish (Cape Town), Brooklyn (Pretoria), The Bridge (Port Elizabeth) and Gateway (Durban). Ster-Kinekor charges R100 for group stages matches and R120 for quarter-finals. The semi-finals and third place match fee is R140, while the final on Sunday will cost R200 per person.

In association with Supersport and DStv, Nu Metro Cinemas have been screening 18 selected FIFA WC matches LIVE in 3-D at the following 14 Nu Metro cinemas:
Emperors Palace, Montecasino, Clearwater Mall, The Glen, Bedford Centre,
Hyde Park, Menlyn Park, The Pavilion, Galleria, V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk,
Riverside Mall, Loch Logan and Walmer Park.
Nu Metro Cinemas have offered attendees to book tickets online.

The ticket price for 3-D movies does not include the cost of 3-D glasses, which  viewers need to watch Nu Metro Cinemas digital 3-D films. 3-D glasses are available at the cinema ticket box and concessions counter for R 5 and can be kept for next time.
