Since the 2010 FIFA football World Cup, Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban has firmly etched its name in the football world as it hosted both a QF as well as the famous SF match between Germany and Spain.
The stadium was in fact expressly built to serve as one of the major venues for the tournament. The ground was officially inaugurated on November, 2009 with a match between Amazulu FC and Maritzburg United. The stadium, with a seating capacity of 56,000, is currently home to the Amazulu FC.
The stadium, located to the north of Durban and sitting right next to Indian Ocean, can be easily recognized by its iconic 106 meters high Y-shaped arch, evidently inspired by the South African national flag.Places nearby:
