Cape Town Routes Unlimited (CTRU) on Thursday said 2010 Soccer World Cup has paved the way for many other international events.

The women's under-19 Softball Championship will take place at the Turfhall Sports Field in Athlone in December.

CTRU CEO Calvyn Gilfellan said they happy the event is in South Africa. "The infrastructure that we left after the world cup is wonderful that we can actually utilise it and show to the world the world cup was not a once off that we can in fact build on that and have excellent events,' he said.
