The 2010 Soccer World Cup Local Organising Committee is not doing enough to promote South Africa to the world, Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke said yesterday.
"SA should start now sending out information to the world on what they can expect from this country during both the Confederations and World Cups," Valcke told the press in Johannesburg.
"We should be starting with the six teams that have already qualified for the Confederations Cup (Italy, Spain, Brazil, United States, Iraq and Egypt).
"It is important for this country to promote itself. It will be too late after the Confederations Cup."
He also told the media to forget about Fifa president Sepp Blatter's reported Plan B.
Blatter told the media in Vienna last month that Fifa had a Plan B in case South Africa was hit by a natural disaster and could not host the 2010 showpiece. _ Sapa
