After FIFA inspections of South Africa's World Cup facilities, organizers have confirmed that all stadia are on-track for timely completion before the 2010 World Cup.

A 50-member delegation from Fifa and the local organising committee (LOC) inspected the five newly built stadiums over the last six days.

The team comprised experts in competition broadcasts, media operations, medical and transport logistics, and protocol.

The competitions chief for the LOC, Dereck Blanckensee, said preparations were on track for all stadiums to be completed within the first quarter of 2010.
