Description: The Cape Town Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa is a stadium under construction for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. During the planning stage it was referred to by some as the African Renaissance Stadium and was originally known before as Green Point Stadium.
The stadium is located in Green Point, between Signal Hill and the Atlantic Ocean, close to the Cape Town city centre and to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, a popular tourist and shopping venue. The stadium will have a capacity of 68,000. The stadium will be connected to the waterfront by a new road connection, Granger Bay Boulevard, and will be surrounded by a 60 hectare urban park.
In the World Cup, it will host five first round matches, one second round, one quarter-final and one semi-final.
