It seems that Soccer City in Johannesburg, the main stadium for the 2010 world cup soccer in South Africa, has been completed. World Cup organising committee CEO Danny Jordaan said that the stadium in Soweto, the venue for the opening match, the final, and various other world cup matches, is still undergoing beautification of the outer perimeter.

“We must agree to reflect the reality of a complete stadium. The outer perimeter, the beautification of the environment, is not complete but we mustn’t conclude that it’s incomplete,” Jordaan said. “Soccer matches don’t take place outside the perimeter but inside the stadium.”

Soccer City, previously known as the FNB stadium, is one of the ten world cup stadiums in South Africa. Over the past years, it has undergone a major upgrade. The design has changed completely and the seating capacity has been increased 80,000 to 94,700, and is therefore Africa largest stadium. The price tag of the upgrade was nearly three billion rand (±300.000 milllion euro).
