Ban Vuvuzelas Campaign - Save Our World Cup
Some people claim that the vuvuzela is part of South African culture and sporting heritage. This is not true. They are not used at other South African sporting events and they have only been used at football matches since the 1990's. Vuvuzelas - or plastic horns - were introduced to South Africa by a business man who first saw them in China in the 1990's.
GAA Bans Vuvuzelas
The GAA announced on 17th June 2010 that vuvuzelas would not be allowed in Croke Park. They were joined by German football club Borussia Dortmund who have also banned them from home matches at the Westfalenstadion.
