About Green Point Stadium

During the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ event, the Cape Town Stadium was known as Green Point Stadium. However, it was renamed after the event. It was constructed on the site of the original Green Point Stadium. For the purposes of this international event, it could seat an impressive 68 000 spectators. Shortly afterwards, the capacity was reduced to 55 000.

Did you know? Today the Cape Town Stadium is the home ground of the Ajax Cape Town Football Club and is the host of the South Africa Sevens Rugby Tournament.

Green Point Stadium was constructed over 33 months. Its design implies a flow, a constant movement and evolution. It is wrapped in an outer layer of woven fibreglass, which has been coated with Teflon. Night lights cause this entire structure to glow, lighting up the skyline and the City Bowl of Cape Town.

The open roof was designed to allow air and light inside, while thick glass panels prevent strong rains and winds from hindering games, matches or performances. Its design is also environmentally sustainable and advanced in terms of the technology and design.

The Cape Town Stadium is situated in Green Point, at the foot of Signal Hill. It is flanked by Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, giving it a rather dramatic setting.

Today, it is used for a number of sporting and entertainment events. It is equipped with modern corporate hospitality suites, conferencing and banqueting facilities, and medical facilities. There are 900 toilets and 360 urinals, 16 lifts, and 115 entry turnstiles.

The Cape Town Stadium was designed and constructed using a number of green methods and initiatives. It is surrounded by an urban park, and is connected to the City Bowl and the V&A Waterfront by a series of well-planned roads and access points.
