FIFA World Cup 2010 – Mbombela Stadium

The Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, is one of the newly built stadiums, with a capacity of 46 000. It will host four first-round matches and it takes its name from the local municipality which incorporates the city of Nelspruit. Mbombela is siSwati (one of the 11 official languages in South Africa) and literally means ‘many people together in a small space.’
Before the Stadium’s construction, Nelspruit had no top football venue to host international matches. After the FIFA 2010 World Cup, the stadium is scheduled to be a multipurpose facility where diversified sporting activities will take place including rugby and cricket while it will also be equipped with conference facilities.
The Mbombela Stadium also enjoys a close proximity to various game parks, giving spectators the opportunity to see the wildlife during rest days.
