History of soccer in South Africa and free game

For anyone studying or interested in the World Cup, the BBC has produced a five minute video of the history of soccer in South Africa. The video is available to viewers in Australia (not always the case with BBC videos).

Kim Baker, the Programme Executive: Document Supply and Information Services at the National Library of South Africa says “Some nice publicity showing the worth of libraries and how they can add value to sport!”

  2. I wish that we weren’t on summer break so that I could use the World Cup as a learning opportunity! I keep seeing all of these great lessons and resources crop up and I know students would enjoy the connection between a favorite sport and learning.
