Mbombela Stadium


Mbombela Stadium

FACTS

Name: Mbombela
City: Nelspruit
Construction: new
Completion: 2009
Gross Capacity: 46 000 (41 000)

The Mbombela Stadium was one of the newly-built stadia for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ and takes its name from the local municipality which incorporates the city of Nelspruit. Mbombela is siSwati (one of the 11 official languages in South Africa) and literally means 'many people together in a small space.' This venue will once again feature in a major football spectacle as it hosts the 2013 Afcon.

The stadium, with a capacity of 46 000 (reduced to 41 000), is located in the city of Nelspruit in Mpumalanga Province. It is situated approximately seven kilometers from the city centre and 12 kilometers from the nearby Kruger-Mpumalanga Airport. The ground also enjoys a close proximity to various game parks, giving spectators the opportunity to see the wildlife during rest days.

The Mbombela comes as a welcome addition to football life in Nelspruit, and will leave a legacy of the beautiful game for all the people of Mpumalanga. Before the Stadium's construction, Nelspruit had no top football venue to host international matches.
