Johannesburg has been rated Africa’s leading Sports City by Sportcal’s Global Sports Cities Index as part of in depth research of 636 cities around the world that have either hosted or will host a world championship or multi-sports games between 2009-2022. In total, the Index analysed 708 events across 143 categories. Johannesburg was place 56th on the international rankings with Durban coming in 98th, making it the second leading Sports City in Africa. Cape Town did not feature in the top 100 of the Index.

“London, UK, is the top Global Sports City for the fourth consecutive year, ahead of Rio de Janeiro, host of next summer’s Olympic Games, in second place, and Moscow in third. London has hosted, or is set to host, 16 world championships and multi-sports games over the analysed period (2009-2022). This includes a substantial proportion of this year’s Rugby World Cup, including both semi-finals and the final. In coming years London will welcome world championships in track cycling, athletics and women’s field hockey.” -  Sportcal’s Global Sports Cities Index
