World cup 2010 at South Africa is coming to the end. The most famous thing in this world greatest event probably not the Maradona altercation with German fans, or the misjudgment of Frank Lampard goal’s in the match between England and German. If you have watched the live game on TV, you probably noticed the annoying ‘woooing’ is never stop during the game was play.  No, it is not your TV’s speaker fault.

What’s plastic, a metre long, brightly coloured and sounds like an elephant? Well, It’s the vuvuzela, the noise-making trumpet of South African soccer fans, and it’s come to symbolise the sport in the country. Traditionally made and inspired from a kudu horn, the vuvuzela was used to summon distant villagers to attend community gatherings. The vuvuzelas produce an average sound pressure of 113 dB at 2 metres (6.6 ft) from the horn opening.  There was a study show that numerous vuvuzelas are typically blown together for the duration of a match, it may put spectators at a significant risk of hearing loss. So it is a awful instrument.

So next time. when you go to watch any kind of matches, bring Vuvuzela along. You sure will be getting attention. But remember some of the sporting matches may not allow to bring it in the stadium.  The noise levels that were demonstrated during the 2010 FIFA World Cup prompted sporting organisations to ban the vuvuzela at future events, including all sporting matches at the Cardiff City, SWALEC and Millennium Stadiums, Wimbledon, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Yankee Stadium, and Ultimate Fighting Championship events.
