SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The 2010 World Cup in South Africa will likely be THE loudest global soccer tournament ever.

According to Alan Black, co-author of The Glorious World Cup: A Fanatic’s Guide (NAL), the 2010 World Cup will be most remembered for the weird noise coming from the stands.

He points out that devoted soccer fans have been buying “vuvuzelas” – loud stadium horns from South Africa – by the dozens, which will sound like “100,000 bees buzzing” once they’re blown during games.

Although the noise will add to the excitement, Black thinks the horns may make it difficult for players to communicate on the field.

Another thing that’ll make this year’s World Cup interesting will be the major “Shakespearean drama” on the field.

Black predicts the “hotheads” from Argentina will surely bring the theatrics, while the epic showdown between USA and England on June 12 will have face-painted soccer fans on the edge of their seats.
