    () (Department of Economics, University of Pretoria)


The following paper is an excerpt from my essay on the impact of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The sections presented here focus on the literature relevant to South Africa’s hosting of the 2010 tournament, and on the lessons that have been learnt in preparing for previous mega-events. Factors that make South Africa’s situation unique are also considered.
