ACCOMMODATION:

The main part of the FiCT2019 Main Event will be held at the Green Point Athletic Stadium in Green Point and we recommend anyone traveling to Cape Town to look for accommodation in the City, alongside the Atlantic Seaboard (Camps Bay, Clifton, Sea Point, Moullie Point & Green Point) - but if you look at googlemaps.com as an example you can see that most areas in the Greater Cape Town area is fairly close.

PS. The past 3 years FiCT has also had an "off site"-event at Clifton 4th Beach and even though it's not announced yet it's not impossible that the Thursday's unannounced event will take place there again..

VISA & TRANSPORT

If you are travelling to South Africa from abroad you might need to get a VISA before arriving, please check our your country’s rules and regulations for travels to South Africa and if you need to get a VISA we recommend you to do so ASAP as the processing time sometimes is lengthy.

The competition it self will be held at the Green Point Athletic Stadium and all venues used for FiCT 2019 is in areas where you can feel safe walking around. It is safe to walk around in Cape Town City and around the Atlantic Seaboard as an example. After dark we don’t recommend you to walk around on your own just to be extra safe.

Transport: either rent a car through a well known rental company (many have offices at the airport and can be pre-booked well in advance) or use UBER as they have a good system and good reliable drivers in Cape Town.
