Johannesburg - The 2010 FIFA World Cup boosted the South African economy by R93bn, Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan said on Thursday.

He announced this after the meeting of the 2010 board of directors in Sandton on Thursday.

At the press briefing after the meeting, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke praised the event staged in South Africa between June 11 and July 11 this year.

"South Africa has set the bench mark for future World Cups. This was rated as the best World Cup ever. It was a fantastic success and Brazil who host the 2014 know they will have a lot of work to do to match South Africa.

"But we have time to help Brazil host an as good if not better event," Valcke said.
