Designed to ultimately lift a whole nation, this fantastic R2.6 billion stadium will hold up to 70,000 screaming spectators for the forthcoming 2010 FIFA Football World Cup tournament in June next year. I’ve been in two minds about it personally as I think it simply looks like a cheap rip-off of the Wembley Stadium in London and I don’t agree with its political associations with the ‘South African Communist Party’ as this isn’t really sympathetic to the legacy of a new ‘rainbow nation’ but hey, being up close to photograph it I have to admit it IS spectacular!
