The bid book for our bucks

The Bid Book used by the South African Football Association to win the rights to host the 2010 Fifa World Cup has been secreted away from the public eye for years now. Detailing the initial projected government expenditure on stadiums and other World Cup related infrastructure, the agreements signed between the South African government and much more, it makes for very interesting reading. The Mail & Guardian now makes it available for public consumption.
