World Cup Info | May 11, 2010
The newly-built Green Point Stadium is located in a prime area of Cape Town, South Africa, and will host one of the 2010 World Cup semi-finals.
The stadium was originally a multi-purpose arena and has served as home to both Santos and Ajax Cape Town, and played host to major musical acts such as Michael Jackson, U2 and Robbie Williams.
Stadium capacity has been increased from 18,000 to more than 66,000 for the World Cup, and once the tournament is over, the ground will most likely be used as a base for a professional football team.
Overlooking the mountains and beach of the city, Green Point Stadium is architecturally impressive and makes a welcome addition to the landscape and energy of Green Point.
Green Point Stadium is also known as Cape Town Stadium and sits at the foot of majestic Table Mountain, just a few hundred metres from the well known Sea Point seafront promenade.

Cape Town has plenty to offer both locals and tourists, with its landmark beaches, vibrant waterfront, and the award winning wine farms of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
