These will be supplied through Dennis' partner Smith Turf, one of South Africa's largest dealers, based in Johannesburg.
The competitions 64 matches will be played in 10 state of the art stadia in Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Capetown, Bloemfontein, Rustenburg, Nelspruit, Polkwane, Durban and Johannesburg with the final being played at the 95,000 seat Soccer Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg.
Four local specialist sportsturf contractors have been involved in the project; constructing, upgrading and maintaining the facilities to meet the standards of FIFA.
Dennis G860's with 8 blade cutters, tungsten tipped verticutters and brush cassettes will be used by the contractors.
A team of agronomists from STRI have been appointed as the pitch consultants to FIFA and are working with the local South African teams to ensure the pitches across all 10 stadia and 32 training camps meet FIFA standards.
An educational ‘Grow-In Day' was arranged at the end of April for all the contractors and groundstaff from all over the country.
This was held at the England training camp at Royal Bafokeng Sports Facility in Rustenburg 120km from Johannesburg.
Dennis representatives Toby Clarke and Ian Howard attended the event which included detailer briefing on all aspects of the pre match preparations including watering, aeration, height of cut and frequency to name a few.
Clarke demonstrated how to use the Dennis machines.
He said: "It was great to be on the England training pitch and meet the team who will deliver the playing surfaces in the coming event."
