    6. 6. Interesting World Cup facts <ul><li>Five of the 32 teams will be African. </li></ul><ul><li>Four of the five ticket packages for fans include Cape Town.

    8. 8. Projections Official Partners Fifa World Cup Sponsors Exclusive Marketing Rights: National Supporters
    9. 9. Projections Restrictions <ul><li>Legislation strictly protects FIFA's trade marks and reserves certain areas of commercial activity for FIFA and its sponsors alone. </li></ul><ul><li>Large events like the World Cup are made possible because of the large amounts of money paid by sponsors, and these sponsors rights are protected. </li></ul><ul><li>The protection of rights is to shield the official sponsors against unfair competition, ambush marketing, counterfeit merchandise, and infringements on their intellectual property and trademarks. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Restrictions <ul><li>For example, a local clothing manufacturer may not print the FIFA logo or the words “2010 World Cup”, “2010 FIFA World Cup” or “SA2010” on T-shirts or any other material to be sold during the event. </li></ul><ul><li>One can, however, obtain a product license to produce official FIFA merchandise. </li></ul>
    11. 11. <ul><li>Certain areas such as stadiums and fan parks will be designated as exclusion zones - in which only Fifa sponsors and affiliates may sell goods. </li></ul><ul><li>The exclusion zone around the stadium will be patrolled to ensure that it remains exclusive to Fifa affiliates. </li></ul>Restrictions <ul><li>Spectators will be monitored for banners, t-shirts and other items that might infringe the rights of sponsors. Items will be confiscated and destroyed. </li></ul>
    12. 12. Non-FIFA viewing areas <ul><li>Non-commercial third party viewing areas, such as pubs, that generally screen sport as part of their offering to patrons, will be permitted to operate as long as they adhere to simple guidelines. They may not use official Fifa logos or charge entry fees. </li></ul><ul><li>They must show the matches live (i.e. with no delays or replays). As long as the venue is licensed correctly, a free license to show the matches will be automatically granted. </li></ul><ul><li>Where a commercial viewing area is staged, all entry fees will have to be donated to Fifa’s 2010 social responsibility programme. </li></ul>
    13. 13. <ul><li>Co-promotions with FIFA sponsors are possible, but the third party cannot be a competitor of any World Cup sponsor, they cannot be directly associated with the mark, and the sponsor always needs to retain primary of exposure / be the “hero” of the promotion </li></ul>Co-promotions with FIFA sponsors
    14. 14. Opportunities <ul><li>Cape Town, as a host city, is likely to experience the greatest benefit within the province. </li></ul><ul><li>Cape Town is likely to get the majority of the pre-event spend on infrastructure, and is also likely to receive the most out-of-province and foreign visitors. </li></ul><ul><li>Areas near the Greenpoint Stadium and the Grand Parade are likely to have the greatest numbers of visitors. </li></ul>
