The recently built Green Point stadium is considered a very creative football arena in Cape Town. This is the stadium hosting one semi-final for the FIFA World Cup™.
Green Point is a multi-purpose stadium, meant for hosting various concerts and events. Those who visit the venue will be astonished of how close the ocean and the mountains are to this place. The other positive thing about it is that the stadium is situated only a short walk from the city’s transportation hub. The venue is partly built on a place that served as a golf course before.
The construction of Green Point stadium came to an end in December 2009; during the building processes the external part of the structure was covered with a noise-reducing finish. The venue is able to host 70,000 fans. The new stadium was built on the area called the Green Point Common that initially was much larger, embracing the whole region between the sea and Signal Hill, stretching from the city centre towards Sea Point.
Newlands is another stadium of international standards situated in Cape Town, but it is mainly used for rugby events. As for the future of the stadium, after the last match of FIFA World Cup, it is possible that the venue will be used by some of the professional football teams in Cape Town, for instance Ajax Cape Town and Santos.
