2010 Fifa World Cup Wikipedia

  1. 1. 12/27/2009 2010 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia, the fr… 2010 FIFA World Cup From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from FIFA 2010) The 2010 FIFA World Cup will be the 19th FIFA World 2010 FIFA World Cup Cup, the premier international football tournament. It is S outh Africa 2010 scheduled to take place between 11 June and 11 July 2010 in South Africa. The 2010 FIFA World Cup will be the culmination of a qualification process that began in August 2007 and involved 204 of the 208 FIFA national teams. As such, it matches the 2008 Summer Olympics as the sports event with the most competing nations. This will be the first time that the tournament has been hosted by an African nation, after South Africa beat Morocco and Egypt in an all-African bidding process. Italy are the defending champions. The draw for the finals took place on 4 December 2009 in Cape Town. 2010 FIFA World Cup official logo Tournament details Contents Host country South Africa 1 Host selection Dates 11 June – 11 July 2 Qualification 2.1 List of qualified teams Teams 32 (from 6 confederations) 3 Prize money and club payments Venue(s) 10 (in 9 host cities) 4 Mascot 5 Match ball 6 Venues 7 Preparations 7.1 Construction strike 8 Relocation rumours 9 Controversies 9.1 France vs. Republic of Ireland 10 Final Draw 11 Matches 11.1 Group stage 11.1.1 Tie-breaking criteria 11.1.2 Group A 11.1.3 Group B 11.1.4 Group C 11.1.5 Group D 11.1.6 Group E 11.1.7 Group F 11.1.8 Group G 11.1.9 Group H 11.2 Knockout stage 11.2.1 Round of 16 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 1/18

Five African nations placed bids to host the 2010 World Cup: Egypt Libya / Tunisia (co-hosting) Morocco South Africa Following the decision of the FIFA Executive Committee not to allow co-hosted tournaments, Tunisia withdrew from the bidding process. The committee also decided not to consider Libya's solo bid as it no longer met all the stipulations laid down in the official List of Requirements. After one round of voting, the winning bid was announced by FIFA president Sepp Blatter at a media conference on 15 May 2004 in Zürich. South Africa was awarded the rights to host the tournament, defeating Morocco and Egypt.[1] Voting Results Country Votes South Africa 14 Morocco 10 Egypt 0 Tunisia withdrew on 8 May 2004 after joint bidding was not allowed Libya bid was rejected: bid did not meet the list of requirements and joint bidding was not allowed Qualification Main article: 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification As the host nation, South Africa qualifies automatically for the tournament. However, South Africa did participate in World Cup qualifiers because the CAF qualifiers also serve as the qualifying tournament for the 2010 African Cup of Nations. They were the first host since 1934 to participate in preliminary qualifying. As happened in the previous tournament, the defending champions were not given an automatic berth, and Italy had to participate in qualification. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 2/18
  3. 3. 12/27/2009 2010 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia, the fr… The qualification draw for the 2010 World Cup was held in Durban, South Africa, on 25 November 2007. List of qualified teams The following 32 teams qualified for the final tournament. AFC (4) CONCACAF (3) UEFA (13) Denmark Australia Honduras England Japan Mexico France Korea United Germany DPR States Greece Korea Qualified countries Italy Republic CONMEBOL (5) CAF (5+1) Netherlands Argentina Portugal Algeria Brazil Serbia Chile Slovakia Cameroon Slovenia Côte Paraguay Spain d'Ivoire Ghana Uruguay Switzerland Nigeria OFC (1) South Africa New (hosts) Zealand This is the first World Cup with no debutant associations, although two of the qualifiers (Slovakia and Serbia) have previously appeared only as parts of former competing nations. In both cases FIFA considers these teams to have retained the earlier nations' records. Based on the October 2009 rankings used for the main draw, South Africa at 86 were the lowest ranked team in the tournament.[2] Prize money and club payments The total prize money on offer for the tournament was confirmed by FIFA as $420 million, a 60 per cent increase on the 2006 tournament.[3] Before the tournament, each participating team would receive $1 million, for preparation costs. Once at the tournament, teams exiting at the group stage would receive $8 million. Thereafter, the prize money would be distributed as follows:[3] $9 million - Round of 16 $18 million - Quarter-finals $20 million - Semi-finals $24 million - Runners up $30 million - Winners In a first for the World Cup, there would also be payments made by FIFA to the domestic clubs of the players representing their national teams at the tournament. This would see a total of €26 million being paid to domestic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 3/18

This would see-aWikipedia, the fr… being paid to domestic representing 2010 FIFA World Cup total of €26 million clubs, amounting to just over €1,000 per player per day. [2] This arrangement followed claims for compensation to FIFA from domestic clubs for the financial cost of injuries sustained to their players while on international duty, such as that from Belgian club Charleroi S.C. for injury to Morroco's Abdelmajid Oulmers in a friendly game in 2004, and from English club Newcastle United for an injury to England's Michael Owen in the 2006 World Cup.[4] Mascot The official mascot for the 2010 FIFA World Cup is Zakumi (born 16 June 1994 ), an anthropomorphised leopard with green hair. His name comes from "ZA", the international abbreviation for South Africa, and "kumi", a word that means "ten" in various African languages.[5] The mascot's colours reflect those of the host nation's playing strip – yellow and green. Zakumi's birthdate coincides with a day known and celebrated as Youth Day in South Africa and their second group match. The year 1994 marks the first non-racial nationwide elections in South Africa. He will turn 16 in 2010.[6] Zakumi, the mascot of The Zakumi's official motto is: "Zakumi's game is Fair Play." The motto was seen in the the 2010 FIFA World digital advertisement boards during the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, and it will Cup also appear in next year's FIFA World Cup.[6] Match ball The match ball for the 2010 FIFA World Cup will be named the "Jabulani", made by Adidas, which means "bringing joy to everyone" in isiZulu. The number eleven plays a prominent role in the the new technologically advanced ball: it is the eleventh World Cup match ball made by the German sports equipment maker; it features eleven colours, one for each player on the pitch; and there are eleven official languages of South Africa. Also, the event will start on the eleventh day of June and end on the eleventh day of July.[7] There have already been critics on the ball. FC Barcelona's goalkeeper, Víctor Valdés, said: "I'm scared about the ball, it's unpredictable".[8] Jabulani, the official match ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Venues In 2005, the organisers released a provisional list of thirteen venues to be used for the World Cup: Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg (two venues), Kimberley, Nelspruit, Orkney, Polokwane/Pietersburg, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria (two venues), and Rustenburg. This was narrowed down to ten venues[9] which were officially announced by FIFA on 17 March 2006: Johannesburg Durban Cape Town Johannesburg Pretoria Moses Mabhida Soccer City Cape Town Stadium Ellis Park Stadium Loftus Versfeld Stadium Stadium http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 4/18

Construction costs are expected to be R8.4bn.[10] In addition to the stadiums being built and upgraded, South Africa is also planning to improve its current public transport infrastructure within the various cities, with projects such as the Gautrain and the new Bus Rapid Transit system (BRT) titled Rea Vaya.[11] Danny Jordaan, the president of the 2010 World Cup organising committee, has said that he expects all stadiums for the tournament to be completed by October 2009.[12] The country is also going to implement special measures to ensure the safety and security of local and international tourists attending the matches in accordance with standard FIFA requirements,[13] including a temporary restriction of flight operation in the airspace surrounding the stadiums.[14] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 5/18
  6. 6. 12/27/2009 2010 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia, the fr… Construction strike 70,000 construction workers[15] who were supposed to be working on the new stadiums walked off their jobs on 8 July 2009. The majority of the workers receive R2500 per month (about £192, €224 or $313), but the unions allege that some workers are grossly underpaid – some receiving as little as R40 (£3.11) a week. A spokesperson for the National Union of Mineworkers said to the SABC that the "no work no pay" strike will go on until FIFA assesses penalties on the organisers. Other unions threatened to strike into 2011. The World Cup organising committee downplayed the strike and expressed confidence that the stadiums will be ready.[16][17][18] Relocation rumours During 2006 to 2007, rumours circulated in various news sources that the 2010 World Cup could be moved to another country.[19][20] Some people, including Franz Beckenbauer, Horst R. Schmidt and, reportedly, some FIFA executives, expressed concern over the planning, organisation, and pace of South Africa’s preparations.[19][21] However, FIFA officials repeatedly expressed their confidence in South Africa as host, and stated that the event will not be moved, with FIFA president Sepp Blatter re-iterating that "Plan A... Plan B... Plan C is that the 2010 World Cup Fans celebrating the will be staged in South Africa".[22][23] Blatter stated that there is a contingency plan to forthcoming 2010 FIFA hold the World Cup elsewhere but only in the event of a natural catastrophe, and that World Cup in South Africa (Camps Bay, the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany also had a similar contingency plan.[23][24][25] Cape Town) Despite reassurances by FIFA that the event would only be moved in the case of natural catastrophe, rumours continued to circulate about possible relocation of the event.[26] These rumours were criticised by South Africa's Deputy Finance Minister Jabu Moleketi, saying that some have targeted the event to reflect their persistent negativity towards South Africa and Africa.[27] Controversies As with many 'hallmark events' throughout the world,[28] the 2010 FIFA World Cup has been connected to evictions[29] which many claim are meant to 'beautify the city', impress visiting tourists, and hide shackdwellers. On 14 May 2009, Durban-based shack-dwellers took the KwaZulu-Natal government to court over their controversial Elimination and Prevention of Re-Emergence of Slums Act, meant to eliminate slums in South Africa and put homeless shackdwellers in transit camps in time for the 2010 World Cup.[30][31] They have gained a lot of publicity for their efforts even in the international media.[32] The most prominent controversy surrounding preparations for the World Cup is the N2 Gateway housing project in Cape Town, which plans to remove over 20,000 residents from Joe Slovo Informal Settlement along the busy N2 Freeway and build rental flats and bond houses in its place in time for the 2010 World Cup.[33] The residents would be moved to the poverty stricken Delft township on the outskirts of the city and out of sight from the N2 Freeway.[34][35][36] In July 2009, South Africa was hit with rolling protests by poor communities who demanded access to basic services, jobs, adequate housing and the democratisation of service delivery. These protests have been linked to the World Cup as protesters complain that public funds are being diverted away from social issues to build stadiums and upgrade airports.[37] [38] France vs. Republic of Ireland Main article: France vs Republic of Ireland (2010 FIFA World Cup Play-Off) In the qualification play-off match between France and the Republic of Ireland on 18 November 2009, French http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 6/18
  7. 7. 12/27/2009 2010 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia, the fr… captain Thierry Henry, unseen by the referee, illegally handled the ball in the lead up to the winning goal, which saw France make the final 32 teams ahead of Ireland. The incident caused widespread debate on FIFA Fair Play, and how matches should be refereed at the highest level. The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) requested a re-play of the game on grounds of fairness, but this was denied by FIFA under the Laws of the Game.[39] A widely reported later request by Ireland to be included as an unprecedented 33rd World Cup entrant was later withdrawn by the FAI, and dismissed by the FAI as peripheral to their other more substantial petitions for change in world football made to FIFA.[40][41] On 2 December, FIFA called an extraordinary general meeting of the Executive Committee to discuss various issues, with the Henry incident high on the agenda. FIFA announced they would be setting up an inquiry into technology and extra officials in the game, but they did not announce a widely expected move of the fast-tracked introduction of goal-line referee's assistants, already being trialled in the Europa League, and confirmed the competition in South Africa would be officiated as normal with a referee, two assistants, and a fourth official.[42] On the subject of fair Play, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said: I appeal to all the players and coaches to observe this fair play. In 2010 we want to prove that football is more than just kicking a ball but has social and cultural value...So we ask the players 'please observe fair play' so [43] they will be an example to the rest of the world Final Draw See also: 2010 FIFA World Cup seeding The FIFA Organising Committee approved the procedure for the Final Draw on 2 December 2009. The seeding was based on the October 2009 FIFA World Ranking and seven squads joined hosts South Africa as seeded teams for the Final Draw. The committee also approved the composition of the other pots as well as the procedure for the final draw. Pot 2 was composed of teams from Asia, Oceania, and North and Central America and the Caribbean. Pot 3 included teams from Africa and South America. Pot 4 had the remaining European teams. Hosts South Africa was automatically positioned as A1; the other seeded teams were drawn into the other groups B–H, but were always in position 1 of their group. Groups were drawn from A to H and the positions in the group were drawn for Pots 2 to 4. Geographical criteria also were respected, meaning that no two teams from the same confederation were drawn in the same group (except European teams, where a maximum of two will be in a group); i.e., South Africa cannot play the African teams from Pot 3 and Argentina and Brazil cannot be drawn against the three remaining South American teams. The first two African teams drawn from Pot 3 are placed with Argentina and Brazil. Similarly, hosts South Africa may not be paired with any of the other African nations (also placed in Pot 3).[44] Pot 1 (Host & Top Pot 2 (Asia, orth Pot 3 (Africa & South Pot 4 (Europe) seven) America & Oceania) America) South Africa Australia Algeria Denmark Brazil Japan Cameroon France Spain Korea DPR Côte d'Ivoire Greece Netherlands Korea Republic Ghana Portugal Italy Honduras Nigeria Serbia Germany Mexico Chile Slovakia Argentina United States Paraguay Slovenia England New Zealand Uruguay Switzerland The group draw was staged in Cape Town, South Africa, at 19:00 (UTC+2) on 4 December 2009 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.[45] The ceremony was presented by South African actress Charlize Theron, assisted by FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke.[46] The balls were drawn by former England captain David http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_2010 7/18
