dc.description.abstract Abstract This research has explored some of the effects that the build up to the 2010 Football World Cup to be hosted in South Africa has had on a local soccer club, eShibobo Football Club (FC)1. Much hope has been placed on this tournament to bring prosperity and overall regional development to South Africa through increased foreign investment, tourism, and improved infrastructure. Using qualitative research methods in the form of field interviews and documentary analysis, the research suggests that the increased revenue earnings of eShibobo FC can be partially linked to South Africa’s hosting of the 2010 World Cup. With this increased revenue the club has been able to spend larger amounts on player salaries, established a comprehensive youth development programme, created links with foreign clubs, and invested in technology to assist the coaching and playing staff. Yet some areas have largely been unaffected by the World Cup such as ticket sales and stadium improvements. en_US
