Sports in Africa 2010 Conference
South Africa hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2010 was the opportunity for the conference presenters to share a diverse and original range of studies on sports in Africa. Following the keynote address by Mr. Hugh Bartis from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University set the tone by presenting South Africa's tourism industry facing opportunities and challenges with the FIFA World Cup. Other presenters discussed topics such as the African participation and contribution to global sport, global media networks, sport and development, gender, music, art, poetry and coaching.
The FIFA World Cup in South Africa was also the opportunity for the 2010 Sports in Africa Conference to honor the memory of an exceptional anti-apartheid activist and poet Dennis Brutus.
