Abstract:

"Everyone has wonderful memories of the 2010 Fifa World Cup ... In June 2010, the richest World Cup ever kicked off as delirious South African fans gathered in a rare act of national unity to make the worldʹs biggest sporting event a success. The magnificent new stadiums were packed and the streets were safe. It all went off like clockwork. But behind this impressive achievement lay billions in wasted public money, crooked companies rigging construction tenders and the fixing of a string of matches involving the national team. Tragically, one of those who blew the whistle would pay with his life."--Page [4] of book cover.
