Johannesburg - The opening day of the 2010 Soccer World Cup went off without any security glitches, the police said on Friday.
"There were no reports whatsoever," said Colonel Vishnu Naidoo.
The only potential risks were well-managed, he said.
At several fan parks across the country there were more supporters outside than inside.
"We advised that the gates be opened for the fans to go. Had we left the gates closed, then there was the challenge that the fences would collapse."
"The situation was well-managed," said Naidoo.
