Cascoland Mafikeng 2010
In June and July 2010 South Africa will host the World Championships Football organized by the FIFA. Millions have been spent on stadiums, architecture and infrastructure and promises of economic and social progress have been made that are to be caused by this four week event. Now the kick-off is approaching the question arises whether these promises will be realized, to what extend the millions of poor in the country will benefit from this event and how sustainable the huge investments will prove. The stadiums with capacities of 50.000 to 60.000 seats will probably remain largely underused after the World Championships and are not neccesarily built with sustainable effects for its surroundings and its citizens in mind.
