World Cup 2010 stadium guide by david field-16825

There is nothing better than travelling abroad to watch football, whether you decide to buy FC Barcelona tickets to watch the Catalan giants or AC Milan tickets to watch the San Siro derby. The 2010 FIFA World Cup, to be held in South Africa, will be an event of lights, sound, noise and - of course - football. In 2005, a provisional list of 13 stadiums was drawn up and presented to FIFA; in March 2006, this list was narrowed down to 10. Here is some information about some of the stadiums to be used.

The FNB stadium (aka Soccer City) is located in Johannesburg and although still under construction, will host the opening and closing matches of the tournament. When construction is completed, the stadium will hold 94,700 people and have revamped changing facilities and floodlights.
The Moses Mabhida stadium is located in Durban, has a planned capacity of 70,000-80,000 people and is intended to be a multi-use stadium, not just for football matches. The stadium will host 8 matches in total, including 5 group games and a semi-final.
The Green Point stadium in Cape Town is another stadium still under-construction and will host the same amount of World Cup games as the Moses Mabhida Stadium. It is expected to hold around 68,000 supporters and is likely to be used for football and rugby matches after the World Cup.
The Ellis Park stadium in Johannesburg is currently being upgraded and should hold around 65,000 supporters for the World Cup. It will host 7 games in total for the tournament and should be completed before 2009, in plenty of time for the World Cup.
The Loftus Versfeld stadium in Pretoria is currently undergoing some slight upgrading in time for the tournament with the scoreboard, floodlights, sound system and stadium roof all receiving attention. These upgrades should be completed within the next few months which leaves plenty of time before the World Cup.

If you aren't able to travel to the World Cup in South Africa, why not buy Barcelona tickets or Real Madrid tickets from Spain Ticket Bureau.
