This panorama can be opened in several different resolutions. High resolution panorama with the best quality is about 7 Mb large and it is suitable for fast internet connections and modern computers. For slower internet and old weak computers we created the smaller low resolution panorama. Some small details have been sacrificed but the size of low resolution panorama is nomore than 2 Mb.
This sphere was shot in Cape Town in the beginning of 2010 over the Green Point Football Stadium which was being built that time and is devoted to the World Cup Football Championship. There are still bulldozers on the project site in the sphere, but now the stadium is completely ready and on June, 11 of 2010 the first match between the football teams of Uruguay and France took place on it.
The new stadium’s construction began in 2006. Before, there was an arena where both sport and cultural events took place. One of the most famous events held there was a charity concert in the frameworks of 46664 Campaign devoted to help people who infected with AIDS. In the show which united 30 thousand people and lasted 5 hours, the well known artists such as Eurythmics, Peter Gabriel, Queen, U2, Robert Plant and many others took part. Owing to this fact the stadium is known as the Most Artistic Football Field.
The new Green Point will be able to allocate 64 thousand people, so, except of territory of the legendary arena the stadium had to occupy the former golf field.
There is a one big stadium in Cape Town more – Newlands, but its specialization is a rugby championship.

"Joseph Arnold, typical liberal, So many hospitals in South Africa but all equipment including beds have been stolen and there is no point building more hospitals. But the liberals don't think that the well and living are entitled to some fun. Thousands of unemployed received jobs in building the stadium plus the position of the stadium enhanced Cape Town and is bringing millions of tourists and jobs to South Africa. Like all liberals, they don't have the brain and imagination to see the positive sides of things. I can see why all the socialist countries are in a big mess, bankrupt feeding their people with endless entitlements and not creating jobs for their large unemployed citizens. Teach to fish and don't keep feeding them with free fish!!! Nothing is free, someone is paying for it."
Vic Levy, USA
"Just think how many hospitals and schools could have been built when another stadium excisted in Newlands"

"A wonderful panoramic aerial photo, which helped revive happy memories of our visit to Cape Town a month ago. Suggestion though: while the photo is titled Green Point Stadium and the article concentrates on this, the photograph includes much more. Why not edit the article to include other noteworthy points of this beautiful city?"
