Wake up and smell the World Cup!

World Cup Soccer 2010

World Cup Soccer 2010

We are looking forward to an incredible showcase of our African Soccer World Cup at the Final Draw for FIFA 2010, taking place in Cape Town.

The final draw for the groups of national teams competing in the 2010 Soccer World Cup will be known after the -more then likely nail biting- final draw event in Cape Town on December 4 2009.

Will there be a pool of death? Which countries will be cheering after the Final Draw, and which teams will our ‘Bafana Bafana’ be competing against, hosting the World Cup.

Come June 2010, an estimated 2.7 million spectators will watch the FIFA World Cup™’s 64 matches played around the country. And when the final is shown, a television audience of up to 28 billion people will have their eyes glued on South Africa.

2010 is an opportunity to speed up growth and development, to market this country and the continent to the world; and an opportunity to make your brand shout!

Although certain areas of commercial activity are limited to FIFA and its sponsors – and there will be strict restrictions on sales, marketing and advertising in designated areas such as stadiums – there will still be openings for local brands to make their mark.

Small, medium and micro enterprises will be able to take up business opportunities created in the ripples of the 2010 World Cup. The hundreds of thousands of visitors who will pour into the country during the event will boost opportunities in accommodation, health services, travel services, short-term insurance, event management, logistics, arts, crafts and entertainment – to name but a few.

Wake up now and smell the opportunities for the 2010 world cup, don’t let your brand be the one left in the dark. Get into the game by kicking off your brand involvement with the Final draw in December.

  1. Great thing this next World Cup!
    I am looking forward to watching it on site in South Africa, but I guess it’s true what they say: gangs of thieves will be on the lookout for tourists.
    I think South Africa’s team will be the big winner of this edition of the World Cup. They’ll get the chance to go further than ever!
