|LOCAL Organising Committee chief executive officer Danny Jordaan today (May 11) denied South Africa had “sold out” for the sake of the 2010 World Cup.|
“The fact of the matter is more countries are making bids... If you make a bid then you accept the terms and conditions of the event,” said Jordaan.
“The World Cup did not change the commercial environment of this country.”
Jordaan was responding to a British journalist, who had asked whether the country had “sold out” and was marginalising people such as informal hawkers.
Jordaan became testy when asked by a reporter from Hong Kong about preparations for the World Cup at Soccer City.
The reporter who arrived a day ago noted the construction work around the stadium and asked if South Africa was following the “Greek lesson”.
Jordaan maintained the current work around Soccer City was a “fit out” and that construction had already been concluded.
“I think your comparison to Greece is out of order. I hope you have a good time in our country,” said Jordaan. – Sapa
