Protecting children during the World Cup and beyond

South Africa (June 23, 2010) — As the most-watched sports event worldwide, the FIFA World Cup 2010 is expected to attract more than a billion television viewers around the world before it is through.

Across the host country, South Africa, fan parks known as FIFA "Fan Fests" have set up huge TV screens and stages for live entertainment. An estimated half a million visitors and hundreds of thousands of local South Africans are watching matches in these public spaces.

Aside from live TV matches and entertainment, a number of the "Fan Fests" also feature "child-friendly spaces"—places where children can play and get help if they are ever separated from their families, exposed to violence or abused.
