Nestled between the undulating cityscape of Cape Town and the Atlantic Ocean, with a permanent seating capacity of 50,000, the Cape Town Stadium has proven to be one of the most enduring images of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
On 15 September 2010, the Stadium triumphed across all categories in the prestigious South African Institute of Steel Construction Awards. The project was commended for its contribution to skills transfer and development in local construction; and garnered praise for the way in which all engineering and architectural challenges were overcome to deliver this daunting project on time for the global soccer showpiece. The project as a whole also won the German Steel Building Award, the ‘Deutscher Stahlbaupreis 2010’, as well as the 2010 CESA (Council of Engineers South Africa) award for Best Lighting Project.
