The hospitality, travel and event service specialist’s pre-tax profit for the year ended September 2010 was £2.3m, compared to a loss of £4.7m for the 12 months ending September 2009.  

In a statement filed at Companies House, Sportsworld said: "Although there were two global events, the Football World Cup and the Winter Olympic Games, that Sportsworld were specifically engaged in, the broader economic climate and South Africa as a destination added to the challenges of successfully delivering these events."  

Sportsworld, which has been appointed as official hospitality sub-agent for the Rugby World Cup 2011, added: "Emphasis is being placed on securing a number of London 2012 appointments."
