The Rocky Road to Legacy: Lessons from the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Stadium Program

Molloy, Eamonn and Chetty, T (2015) The Rocky Road to Legacy: Lessons from the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Stadium Program. Project Management Journal, 46 (3). pp. 88-107.

Abstract

This article describes how the management and organization of the South African 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium program shaped the current legacy of an oversupply of overdesigned and underutilized stadiums. The article identifies seven key factors that explain the differences between expected benefits and the actual legacy. Identification of these factors contributes to the increasing academic interest in explaining the poor legacy outcomes of mega-events. In conclusion, we recommend that future host country governments defragment their stadium programs by establishing a World Cup Delivery Authority (WCDA), with responsibility for the leadership and coordination of the stadium program.
