2010 World Cup™ stadiums - Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth

The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium was built overlooking the North End Lake, close to the heart of the city of Port Elizabeth. It is the first world_class football (soccer) dedicated stadium in the city or surrounding areas; actually in the whole Eastern Cape Province. The stadium has an eye-catching, unique roof-structure and a spectacular view. The view over the North Ende Lake is spectacular. As there are not many stadiums in the world that are designed and constructed overlooking a lake, this in itself is a very distinctive feature of the Nelson Mandela Bay Multi-Purpose Stadium.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium will host the match for third place , and a quarter-final amid a total of eight matches during the FIFA World Cup.
Weather: rainy | Close to a National Park/Game Reserve: Yes (Addo NP)
