History and description

Since its construction, FNB Stadium has been nicknamed Soccer City because of its many concerts and events held there. It is currently used for football (soccer) matches and it can hold about 54,000 spectators. The stadium received a major upgrade in 2009 in preparation for the World Cup. As a result, its capacity increased to about 95,000 people, however this was temporarily reduced again during the World Cup to about 85,000 seats.

At the World Cup, Soccer City hosted the opening match between South Africa and Mexico (1-1), four group matches, a round of 16 match, the quarter-final between Uruguay and Ghana (1-1), and the final between Spain and the Netherlands (1-0).

The FNB Stadium in Johannesburg had earlier hosted the final of the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations, and it hosted the final of the same tournament again in 2013.

The stadium is intended to have the shape of an African pot (calabash).

How to get to Soccer City

Soccer City is located in the south-west of Johannesburg on the edge of the city of Soweto. It is about 8 kilometers from Johannesburg's Central Business District.

Turn east onto Rand Show Road and follow until you reach the T-section with Nasrec Road. Turn left onto Nasrec Road and follow until you see the stadium on the left.
