Reference from STRI World Cup Special Edition 250:
The main contractors, Albert Oberholzer (aka Obie), and their staff were a great
pleasure to have dealings with. They were responsible for producing all of the World
Cup pitches, including the TBC pitches throughout South Africa.
They were truly professional and most courteous.
