2010 World Cup™ stadiums - Nelspruit (Mbombela)

Nelspruit is Mpumalanga's capital and the gateway to South Africa's most famous Kruger National Park. The city got recently renamed to "Mbombela" (meaning "many people together in a small place" in SiSwati), but will retain "Nelspruit" during the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa.

The newly build stadium (construction work still in progress) is located on open land 6km west of Nelspruit (see map) with the stadium as the centrepiece of a sports precinct with athletics and cricket as well as other sports activities.
