Abstract

The 2010 FIFA World Cup extravaganza was widely touted as a great African mega event that, while located in South Africa, would bring economic and social benefits across the continent. The aim of this paper is to critically assess four of these claims. The key findings are that the claims raised were exaggerated and not achieved, and indeed the impact was in many ways negative driven by profit motives rather than addressing South Africa’s long-term social, welfare, health and education challenges.
