Japan football chief seeks vuvuzela ban at World CupTOKYO - The head of Japan’s football association wants FIFA to ban vuvuzela trumpets at the World Cup next year. Japan Football Association President Motoaki Inukai said he had already asked officials in South Africa to stop the use of the noisy instruments, and would ask FIFA - football’s world governing body - to do so, too, the Sankei Sports newspaper reported Tuesday.
The trumpets are a fixture at matches held in South Africa, where they’re blown continuously by fans and drew complaints from players, coaches and broadcasters at the Confederations Cup earlier this year. AP
