Stadium Information:

The Soccer City stadium is set to be the main attraction at the forthcoming World Cup finals. Not only will it be where the South African’s get the party started on the opening day but it will also host the highlight itself in the final game of the World Cup. The current capacity for the Soccer City Stadium is around 80,000 but there are plans to expand the capacity to around the 94,500 mark before the finals kick-off. The stadium will also be undergoing several upgrades with brand new changing rooms being implemented while the floodlights will also be in line for some improvements.

You can tell the Soccer City Stadium is the main venue as the design sets it apart from the other nine world cup venues. The stadiums design is based on the African pot known as the ‘Calabash’. It’s a marvellous venue at any time of the day but the night matches is when the stadium really comes to life.
