Africa to benefit from 2010 World Cup

A government-backed programme to ensure that the hosting of the 2010 soccer World benefits the entire continent, is to be launched. This was announced by Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan when he addressed a meeting of the African Editors Forum in Johannesburg yesterday. Jordaan said that plans were already being made to launch the African Legacy Programme in July. He said the committee planned to use the hosting of the tournament to facilitate development on the continent. Jordaan pointed out that it was important that after the World Cup, the continent's people should have something positive to cherish.
