More Details on the new Durban Stadium

September 23, 2007

There was a good aerial photo of the construction progress at the Moses Mabhida stadium in the Durban Metro magazine a couple of weeks ago.  This was taken some time in late July/early August 2007 (photo by Peter Bendheim):

 Here is some additional information on the facilities at the new Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban (this is from the Durban city website):

The Moses Mabhida stadium incorporates an impressive range of facilities and features, including:

  • Flexible seating capacity will provide 54 000 permanent seats but will allow for an additional 31 000 temporary seats to be added, for a maximum capacity of 85 000. For the World Cup, the stadium will seat 70 000.
  • The stadium bowl design provides for a multi-purpose facility that can cater for international football, rugby, athletics and concert events.
  • A 100m high arch which will possibly include a cable car and action walk.
  • A raised stadium podium will allow for easy, safe access to the site.
  • Pedestrians and vehicles will be kept totally separate.
  • Parking (1 000 bays) will be provided under the raised podium for operational requirements and VIPs.
