Overall, given that a legacy is by definition something that lasts over time, the actual success of the 2010 World Cup legacy projects in addressing the country's development objectives is difficult to measure as these effects will mature over time and it may simply be too soon to answer this question conclusively. Nevertheless the literature and interviews conducted for this study provide an overview and analysis of the legacy and developmental plans and intentions of various national, provincial and local stakeholders and therefore provides a baseline of information against which the developmental achievements of various legacy projects can be evaluated in future.
