Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban

Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban (must see)

The Moses Mabhida Stadium is a stadium in Durban named after Moses Mabhida, a former General Secretary of the South African Communist Party. It is a multi-use stadium and was one of the host stadiums for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The stadium has a capacity of 62,760 during the World Cup and 54,000 afterwards. The stadium is adjacent to the Kings Park Stadium, in the Kings Park Sporting Precinct, and the Durban street circuit used for the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport. It includes an adjoining indoor arena, football museum, sports institute, and a transmodal transport station.

Somewhat reminiscent of the famous Wembley Stadium arch, a 350-metre (1,148 ft) long free and 105-metre (344 ft) high span arch holds up the roof of the stadium, the top of the arch rises to 106 metres (348 ft) above the pitch. The arch represents the once divided nation coming together, inspired by the South African Flag.
