Abstract

Sports mega events increasingly take place in the metropolises of emerging economies. As a city-marketing tool these events are said to make the host cities more visible in the international competition for foreign and domestic investments. Infrastructural upgrades and fast tracking of urban development projects, as well as giving focus and legitimation to urban policy makers, are supposedly the further benefits of hosting mega events. These concepts are examined in the context of the FIFA World Cup competition in South Africa. - (AJC)
