Shakira sang “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” and South Africans rejoiced in hosting the world’s biggest football tournament – 2010 was a year no one will forget!

With the use of data and interviews conducted at the time, a decade later we are able to reflect on the hosting of this ground-breaking African tournament and ask ‘was it worth it’.
