SAIIA Celebrates our Birthday in World Cup Style


World Cup Fever hasn’t escaped the SAIIA offices and to celebrate our 76th birthday this year the Institute hosted a fun charity dinner themed along the World Cup.

Our diplomatic friends generously donated prizes for the event’s lucky draw, including: an Argentinian jersey that the Embassy hopes Maradona will sign, a full set of 12 German shirts and shorts for a prep school, a Danish souvenir scarf, an Italian team jersey, a New Zealand makarapa, a French jersey, a Spanish jersey and ball, a Mexican scarf and ball – and one of only two jerseys to be made available in South Africa signed by the whole US team!

Other works of interest around the World Cup include:

  • Goal Oriented by Suzanne Dowse
  • FIFA 2010 World Cup: More than Just Football for SA? by Yarik Turianskyi
  • Security Concerns around the World Cup by Capt.(Retired) Frank van Rooyen
