You hardly hear about South African football (soccer) stadiums. I wonder why? I have my theories as to why but the only one that is ever featured is the ground in Jo'Burg that has the lights suspended above the playing surface. What are some of the other grounds? Are they really that bad? I could sort of imagine they would be for some reason. I take it the venues for WC2010 will be primarily the rugby grounds and new facilities.
Can't say I know much about SA soccer grounds either and the only one I know off the top of my head is the same one HD mentioned, the one they used for the African Nations Cup Final when Mandella was pres. That seemed to be a rectangular version of Waverley.
Its also my impression that the Rugby grounds are of much higher quality (unsurprisingly due to historic race/sport relations). Ellis Park was used for a Jo'burg derby in the soccer when the crush disaster happened a couple of years ago. The match was switched from whatever other ground would have been used because of EP's superior size.
