Green Point Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa
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.
