Construction of Cape Town Stadium for World Cup 2010 began in March 26, 2007.
Over 5 million bricks were used for building this giant project –
which, no doubt, will become pride of each and every capetonian. This
massive building meant for conducting large international events and
will amaze its visitors by its splendid design, grandiose really giant
size. Beautiful grass carpet for the Stadium field combines winter rye
and Kentucky Blue grass. This particular mixture has been selected
specifically for this Grand Event of FIFA 2010 since it can endure
damage and provide excellent ‘bounce and roll'.
