Bafana got R20m from Lotto
Cape Town - R20m of the cost of Bafana Bafana's training camps in Brazil and Germany were paid for by lottery money, the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund said on Tuesday.
It had paid R1.869bn to 2285 beneficiaries in the 2009/10 financial year.
"R471 million alone was allocated for projects linked to the 2010 World Cup event," the fund said in a statement.
"[This included] a grant of R170m for three legacy soccer fields in every province as well as R20m for Bafana Bafana training camps in Brazil and Germany."
A further R20m had been given to the cup local organising committee towards the event's opening and closing ceremonies.
An R88m grant went to the Trust for Health Systems and Planning for procurement of HIV testing kits and TB prophylaxis.
