Cape Town, played a major part of this success, hosting 7 matches which included one semi-final. In 1997, Cape Town also bid for the 2004 Olympic Games which were awarded to the city of Athens.

We take a closer look at where Cape Town is headed and what it needs to think about to benefit from mega-events.
