This is the second in our series of posts on the new stadium under construction in South Africa for World Cup 2010. See our previous post on Green Point Stadium.
South Africa’s Wembley Stadium? With its soaring arches, Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium, currently under construction, certainly has a passing resemblance to London’s white elephant. The arch in Durban is slated to be a little bit special, though: the arch also serves as a pedestrian walkway, so spectators will be able to traverse the stadium 100 metres above the pitch by foot or go up there via a cable car lift. The arch will apparently even offer bungee jumping (hopefully not during World Cup matches).Moses Mabhida Stadium rendering
