Also known as Soccer City, this iconic 94,000-seater venue is Africa's largest stadium. First built in 1986, it was rebuilt for the 2010 World Cup. It is designed to resemble an African calabash (a gourd used to carry water), with an orange, red and gold-coloured exterior that blends with the nearby mine dumps. Soweto football team Kaizer Chiefs play here, whilst it is also the venue for large concerts, political rallies and sporting events. It was also the venue of Nelson Mandela's memorial service attended by the world's leaders.Tours of the stadium, including a visit to the players' rooms, can be booked.
