Hotels and various other accommodation providers near Cape Town’s soccer stadium have benefited the most from the soccer World Cup, Cape Town Tourism said on Friday.
In an assessment released as the tournament reached its halfway mark, it said occupancy levels for the metropolitan city as a whole had averaged 40 percent for the first two weeks.
This figure increased by six percent from week one to week two and indications were that this upward trend would continue.
However some 28 percent of establishments were already enjoying occupancies of from 71 to 100 percent.
"The beneficial effect of the 2010 Fifa World Cup to accommodation establishments in Cape Town has been felt to the greatest effect in concentrated areas near to the stadium, major attractions and Fan Walk/Fan Fest areas," the organisation said.
