Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban Overview

An iconic symbol of South African modernity, the stadium is a fantastic sporting venue, hosting some of the most important events in world world football. It is an absolute sight to behold.

The stadium was opened in 2009, mainly built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The stadium's architecture is striking. The arch stretching across the length of the stadium is symbolic of the union of South Africa, like in the flag of the country. One might say the arch is quite similar to that of London's Wembley. The arch can be reached by a futuristic car, and from it's peak you can have some unbelievable views of the city. Or for the adrenaline junkie, try out the Big Rush Big Swing, the world's only stadium swing, and the world's largest swing. Jump off the arch from a height of 106 metres, covering a huge arched movement of 220 metres! Coming to the events it has hosted, 7 games were played here during the FIFA World Cup, including the semi final in which eventual champions Spain beat Germany. The stadium also hosted 6 games during the 2013 African Cup of Nations. It has even hosted a cricket match, a T20 international between India and South Africa which the former won. Currently it's being set up to be the main venue of the 2022 Durban Commonwealth Games. This iconic piece of architecture, named after the hero of the struggle against Apartheid, the Moses Mabhida is a wonderful representation of South Africa and it's great progress, and a sight to definitely witness.
