It’s proximity to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront makes it an easily accessible and popular tourist venue. More importantly, Cape Town Stadium boasts a capacity of 55 000 people and plays host to a number of important sports games and events.

The stadium was also built by utilizing energy efficient and environmentally friendly principles. The old Green Point Stadium was demolished to make way for Cape Town Stadium and ninety-five percent of the components from the old stadium were re-used and recycled. Potable water usage is also kept low and natural water sources are used.

There are also exciting new opportunities around the corner for the stadium as it has been proposed that the facility be opened up for commercial use. This would mean the stadium would house more commercial concerns, such as restaurants and coffee shops.
