Rent a Timeshare for the World Cup

As all of you savvy timeshare owners know, one of the great bonuses of being a timeshare owner is the opportunity for timeshare exchange which opens up the entire world to you.

Take for example the exciting things that are taking place in South Africa. In June, 2010, South Africa will make history by hosting soccer's FIFA World Cup. Soccer (known to other countries as "football") is the most widely followed sport on the planet. And 2010's World Cup will be a sporting extravaganza, with the final games staged in 10 venues in nine cities spread all around South Africa.

The world has watched South Africa make enormous strides since the historic day Nelson Mandela walked away from political imprisonment and turned to meet the challenges facing his country. Since then South Africa has been emerging to take its proper place among the world's nations. To that end, South Africans have been proud to promote their country by hosting such events in the past as the historic Rugby World Cup and the Cricket World Cup.

“One of the big legacies of the 2010 World Cup will be to finally position South Africa as an events and sports tourism destination,” explains Sugen Pillay, South Africa Tourism's Global Manager of Events. South African finance minister, Pravin Gordhan, predicts that the World Cup will help the country’s economy grow by 2.3 per cent in 2010.

In fact, the FIFA World Cup is seen as a springboard to promote tourism not only to South Africa, but the entire African continent. With the continent’s major teams taking part – Algeria, Cameroon, the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Nigeria - United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) secretary-general Taleb Rifai notes that the World Cup has the potential to be a historic landmark for all of Africa. “There is already a change of image about Africa – and this will be a great opportunity to showcase the continent," Rifai stated. "The positive side of Africa is its tourism attractions, the cultures and the people."
