World Cup Soccer Stadium

I visted the World Cup Soccer Stadium yesterday afternoon and for the for the first time since the project started, I got feeling of real excitement when I saw the progress and the buzz on the site. Somehow, the roof cladding has made the difference.

Now for confession time - I have been watching this development rather dispassionately, over the past months. Perhaps it is because I am not a soccer fan, or maybe it is because I can't understand why billions of rands are spent on a structure, where a few games will be played ..................... and then its all over.

On the positive side, we will have a world class stadium that can be used to attact more big games to the city. You cannot deny that these days "sport = big bucks" - so bring it on and let the city benefit.




If you are interested I will be posting more pictures of the stadium on Port Elizabeth Daily Photo over the next few days.
