Green Point Stadium

Green Point Stadium

Green Point Stadium will be a brand new venue in Cape Town built specifically for the 2010 World Cup being held in South Africa. The stadium is due to be handed over to the organisers in December 2009 and the building contractors say they are on target to achieve that goal. The stadium is being built in the Green Point suburb of Cape Town hence the name and is a 'Stone's Throw From The Ocean' according to the official stadium information.

The stadium will give the residents of Cape Town a world class multi-purpose stadium that can be used both during the tournament and after as a long lasting legacy of the event. It was decided that Cape Town would have a newly built stadium as opposed to using Newlands as that is used primarily as a Rugby Union venue. Tournament officials did not want to use too many Rugby specific stadiums for the World Cup and as such Green Point was conceived.
