Just a few more days (edit: June) until the kick-off of the first match of the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup. This a momentous occasion - the reality of this event is becoming tangible. There has been a lot written about the skepticism surrounding the readiness of South Africa to host this event. The Confederations Cup last year did well, from a marketing perspective, to change global perception about South Africa's readiness. Further, there has been a lot of backing from high profile figures that South Africa would be ready. Agreed, that a large number of these commentators have a vested interest in the success of this event; nonetheless a positive message has been communicated to the global community.

@byron: what about restaurants who just don't give a $*#&). they offer bad service now. they ll offer bad service during the world cup...And somehow, they still survive and stay in business. = case 3!

|cant wait for the world cup. got tickets for two games! & I for one think it's good that lots of tourists leave their money here.good for the economy and good for the people.
As for the restaurants, if the World Cup promotes the country, more tourists will come to Cape Town. And if a restaurant becomes popular among tourists, if a restaurants promotes itself mainly to tourists at holiday resorts etc.; they might not even care about us locals. They are just looking for tourists. And with more and more travelers coming from overseas, that might not be such a bad strategy!
just a thought
