The mothership – Cape Town, March 2013

The Cape Town Stadium was built on the site of the old Green Point Stadium for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which was held at various locations around South Africa.  By day, it is a gently undulating grey structure, but by night it is lit up from within and the glow of the lights through its metal lattice structure makes it look surprisingly delicate and ethereal for a stadium that holds almost 65,000 people.  I love it.

    The Cape Town Stadium, just like the Nelson Mandela bay Stadium in PE, has really become a modern landmark in the city recognised by many. I was in CT last weekend and got to take a walk around the outside. Would love to go to a sport or music event there.
