    Thanks for this, Tom! Though I have to disagree about this stadium being the most memorable – I’d give this title to Kapstaad. And as for the temporary seating – not sure if a country like RSA (or Poland for that matter) can afford it. Of course I still have the uncertainty you wrote about as to whether it can be filled frequently and at what cost.

    I think setting-wise Cape Town certainly more memorable, but I think design-wise Soccer City is hard to beat though. The temporary seating in Cape Town is going to be converted to seats after the World Cup — I’m not really sure why a similar set-up wasn’t considered for Soccer City, but perhaps it wouldn’t work with the design.

    Good again, like the images showing the technical/architectural development of the stadia.

    On an interesting postscript, its worth reading Keir Radnege in this months edition of ‘World Soccer’ magazine. It casts some telling insight into SA outwith the stadia. I just wish I could go to South Africa 2010 and spend the whole tournament in the stadia and its immediate vicinity.

    Whatever the weather this is a huge opportunity for all of Africa to shine.As for location Cape Town is unbeatable in all aspects,and has attitude experience over other provinces.If there is drama its not going to happen in the bull and ape.Remember,this was the stage for Nelson Mandela’s release,very powerful,always in the minds of the masses around the world.

    If any stadium deserves to host final of world cup, it is surely this one.
