The FIFA Soccer World Cup in 20101 will be a month-long event during June/July of that year and will be decided by 64 matches played in 10 stadiums spread over 9 cities throughout South Africa. During this time approximately 450 000 visitors are expected to visit this country, while 3.3 million tickets for these matches will be sold. South Africa, as the host country, is obligated to ensure a high level of security for this event, which includes the security of the teams, the spectators and their property for the duration of the event. At the same time "normal" policing, i.e. policing the public of South Africa, cannot be neglected.
