Durban and KwaZulu-Natal Hope to Cash in as Teams' Home Base

The city of Durban and the KwaZulu-Natal province have been selected as the home base of the second greatest amount of World Cup teams, providing what locals hope will be a boon to the area's economy.

Both tourism leaders - speaking at separate events more than a week apart in the city - made almost identical declarations about Durban's fortunate 2010 position. But they both also asked the industry and South Africans alike to seize the "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity and promote the World Cup.
