2010 World Cup™ stadiums - Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban

Durban's new "Moses Mabhida Stadium" was built on the site of the old Kings Park Stadium adjacent to the ABSA Stadium and the Durban street circuit used for the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport. It is somehow the new heart of the Kings Park Sporting Precinct. The 70,000-seater has been specifically designed as a multi-purpose venue and an amphitheatre complete with a cable car which ascends to a viewing platform at the top of the expansive 350m arch, a staggering 106m above the pitch.

The Stadium is named after Moses Mabhida (14 October 1923 – ?? March 1986), who was a South African politician and leader of the South African Communist Party (SACP) from 1978 until his death in 1985.

  1. eThekwini municipal manager Michael Sutcliffe announced on Tuesday (19 Jan 10) that Durban residents and tourists will soon be able to bungee swing from the top of the Moses Mabhida Stadium arch across to the other end of the stadium. Not bad, hey ;-)
