Trivia Work was delayed on the project as the land used was occupied by a school that had to be relocated first. The stadium has 1,030 toilets. Spectators at the front of the stands will be closer to the pitch than anywhere else at the tournament The new Mbombela Stadium is a 46,000-seater arena located 5km west of town in Mataffin. The Mbombela - which means 'many people in a small space' - has been nicknamed the 'Giraffe Stadium' because of the 18 roof supports designed to look like the inhabitants of Kruger National Park, one of Africa's largest game reserves. Just off the N4, access by car or bus should pose no problems. Organisers have designated four park-and-ride sites: Nelspruit Rugby Club, Nelspruit High School, Bergvlam High School and the Agricultural Research Centre. The Fan Park is set to be housed up at the Agri cultural Showgrounds.

Trivia In 1955, over 100,000 watched the rugby match between South Africa and British Lions and, in 2005, it became the first black-owned stadium in the country The site of the 1995 Rugby World Cup final - when South Africa tore up the formbook to defeat New Zealand and Nelson Mandela famously donned a green Springbok shirt to present the trophy to home skipper Francois Pienaar - Ellis Park may be a shrine to the scrum and the ruck, but it is no stranger to football either. Orlando Pirates, where the likes of Mark Fish and Teko Modise have plied their trade, call the ground home.

The multi-purpose venue includes an indoor arena, football museum, sports institute and a transport hub The Moses Mabhida Stadium, the venue for five group matches, one second-round game and a semi-final, is a sumptuous, newly-built 70,000 arena close to the Indian Ocean in the Stamford Hill district to the north of downtown. Along with the Green Point in Cape Town, this three-tier wonder is the most visually breathtaking of the World Cup 2010 venues, with its focal point being the Wembley-like arch, along which a cable car will run.

(image) Trivia During the planning stage, it was referred to by some as the African Renaissance Stadium and was then called the Green Point Stadium. The 37,000 sq m roof weighs 4,500 tons. The Cape Town Stadium, one of several venues built specially for the World Cup, has not had an easy birth. From the off, the project was mired in controversy, with protests that it was located in a predominantly white part of the city, and work was delayed several times by strikes over low wages paid to builders. Nevertheless, it was completed well ahead of schedule.
