South Africa’s premier soccer venue is the FNB Stadium, known as Soccer City. It seats a massive 80,000 individuals, and made for a thrilling sight on 3 February 1996, when Bafana Bafana beat Tunisia in the final of the African Cup of Nations. Built in 1987, South Africa’s national soccer stadium has played host to some of the most memorable matches in the country's soccer history.
Soccer City is South Africa’s foremost soccer venue and it will be the main venue for the 2010 Football World Cup, hosting the final. It is set to be enlarged from its present seating capacity of 80,000 to 94,700 for soccer’s showcase event.
Some significant changes will be made to the present two-tiered bowl for the World Cup: the upper tier will be extended around the stadium, while an encircling roof will be added. New changing rooms will be developed, and new floodlights installed. The upgrades are expected to be completed by April 2007.
Soccer City is home to the South African Football
Association and often used as a venue for matches
featuring Bafana Bafana, as well as the massive
