How much money did South Africa make by hosting the world cup?

    According to the article below, not enough. There was concern before the event that hosting the world cup would be a drain on South Africa’s resources, and the 3.6 billion rand (519.6 million US dollars) was not enough to make up for the 40 billion rand South Africa spent. The state of the economy prevented a lot of people from going to the world cup who might otherwise have gone, but those who did go liked South Africa, so maybe the event helped boost future tourism.
