FNB Stadium (Soccer City)


The stadium was built in 1987 but underwent major refurbishment ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which saw the stadium rebuilt in the form of a calabash, a symbol of sharing and togetherness. FNB Stadium has an important place in South African history, hosting the World Cup opening and closing ceremonies. Today, the FNB Stadium is a unique architectural landmark in Soweto’s skies. It’s little wonder that FIFA has described it as one of the most artistic and awe-inspiring football venues on the African continent. It frequently plays host to major music events, including touring stars such as Rihanna, Justin Bieber, U2 and many others.
