Inhaltsangabe:Introduction:?The government will leave no stone unturned to ensure that everything is done to host a tournament that meets the expectations of billions of football fans across the world?. Together we will ensure the resounding success of the first FIFA African World Cup?.With these words, the President of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki, promised football fans all around the world an amazing sporting event after his country was chosen to be the host of the Football World Cup (FWC) 2010.

The crime rate in the country is extremely high and the poverty in certain areas is still a big problem. If that were not enough, a former professional football player from Austria was killed on a golf course in Durban, during the FIFA draw and a few weeks ago, the media report on xenophobic attacks in local townships. Unfortunately, all this bad news overshadowed the anticipation concerning the big event. In any case, South Africa is a country that has much to offer tourists from all around the world. The vast majority of the South Africans are friendly people that live in a country with beautiful landscapes, beaches, mountains and […]
