Views : Wags prepare to invade SA hotels, malls

They've probably planned their outfits and started their beauty regimes already.

Alex Gerrard and Colleen Rooney, wives of England footballers Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney, are all ready and geared up to head to South Africa for the World Cup.


Equipped with their husbands' credit cards, the two footballers' wives, along with other English wags (wives and girlfriends) such as Carly Zucker, girlfriend of Joe Cole, will arrive next month and stay in the most luxurious hotels the country has to offer.

This is despite England coach Fabio Capello's insistence that wags would be limited in contact with their loved ones for the entire tournament.

In 2006, the wags drew headlines for the way they drank and shopped in the German spa town of Baden-Baden when England crashed out of the quarter-finals. Six were said to have blown more R7 million at boutiques in an hour.

While David Beckham and his team struggled for form on the pitch, the wags displayed a world-beating propensity for shopping, partying and quaffing champagne.

The wags will be staying at the five-star Palace of the Lost City at Sun City as well as The One&Only Hotel in Cape Town.

With Capello's England camp base in host city Rustenburg, 20km away, all arrows are pointing towards Sun City as the wags' choice of stay.

And with just over a month to kick-off, the four-hotel and casino complex in South Africa's pristine rural north-western bush is fully booked.

"Sun City Resort is at 100 percent room occupancy," said spokesman Brett Hoppe. "Obviously because of the proximity to the English team base camp there is a strong possibility that wags will make use of the facilities at Sun City."

There are also suggestions that the wags have booked out the presidential suites at The One&Only Hotel for the second half of the tournament.

The hotel is booked out from the semi-finals till the end of the tournament.

Its penthouse suites, at R95 000 a night, will be taken over by the wags - a small price considering their husbands' and boyfriends' earnings.

Alex's husband Steven Gerrard earns an average of R1.4 million a week plying his trade at Liverpool, while Colleen's husband Wayne Rooney earns just under a million a week playing for Manchester United.

Although Tony Romer-Lee, general manager of The One&Only, could not confirm whether the wags would be staying at his hotel, he did promise guests the time of their lives during the World Cup.

"One&Only Resorts respects the privacy of its guests, and as such does not publicise guest names; however, guests visiting the resort over the World Cup period can expect the largest accommodation in all of Cape Town," said Romer-Lee.
