Tourist Attractions : New Stadiums

With the FIFA 2010 World Cup starting off with a bang, foot ball fans from around the world are gearing up to visit the official host of the tournament, South Africa.

Though the country had a few glitches prior to arranging the venues and facilities for the individual matches, it has built some really fantastic stadiums that will open for the first time during the tournament.

Here are some of the most anticipated stadiums that will come into the limelight for the first time during the FIFA World Cup 2010.

Green Point Stadium: Located right next to the stunning ocean and the imposing mountain range in Cape Town, the Green Point Stadium has a capacity to seat 70000 spectators at any one time and has a massive retractable glass roof that is said to weigh almost 4500 tonnes.

 

The entire establishment has been fitted with noise fitting cladding on the outside to drown the noise of the maddening crowds during the matches.

Moses Mabhida Stadium: Located in Durban, the Moses Mabhida Stadium has been designed to reflect the South African flag. The stadium can seat 70000 spectators and has an imposing arch that rises above the stadium from the southern end and comes togther at the legs on the northern side of the stadium to symbolise the country’s unity.

A highlight of the Moses Mabhida Stadium is the spectacular cable car ride that will take riders to the top of the archway which is about 347 feet high.

Mbombela Stadium: This awe inspiring structure can seat up to 46000 spectators at any one time and is located in Nelspruit. The name translates to “many people together in a small space” in English and the stadium is located quite close to several game parks.

The stadium takes its design inspiration from an African safari based theme and reflects the same with zebra striped seats and giraffe shaped roof structures throughout the arena. Correo temporal gratis

Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium: Named after the legendary political figure of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium is located near the Nelson Mandela Bay and Port Elizabeth.

The stadium can seat up to 46000 guests at any one time and has a specially designed roof that looks like the petals off a flower, thus earning it the nickname “The Sunflower”. The stadium overlooks the shores of the North End Lake.

Soccer City Stadium: Able to seat a maximum of 94500 spectators at any one time, the Soccer City Stadium is located in Johannesburg and is touted to become one of the most spectacular arenas in the entire world once it opens. The opening and final matches of the World Cup will be played here.

The stadium is designed after the traditional African pot called the calabash and is completely lit on the outside at night, giving it a futuristic look.
