Not to hate on Moses Mabida or anything, but I honestly don't get why having an arch makes it so special? Sure it looks very cool, but people are going around proclaiming as if an arch somehow makes it a God-send.

Anyway, my three favourites are Soccer City, Moses Mabida and Greenpoint. Each of them are awesome in their own way.

theres that big rock behind the stadium that brings 1.6 million visitors annually. im quite happy with it thanks.

Moses is great, with a fantastic fabric roof. They requested an icon, and they got an arch, which is fantastic! Other cities have the location as the icon.

It wont be installed. It will just be grass. You won't be any closer to the action with or without the track. Its a great athletics stadium, but for Football I'd prefer being closer to the action if I'm going to pay tons for a ticket.

yea yea cape town is the top tourist city. The landscape of where greenpoint is built is such a beautiful one, with the table mountain looking down. what makes Moses special is the arch which i haven't seen a stadium of all my years watching the world cup....its just such a beautiful stadium reminds me of wembley...greenpoint looks like allianz arena.

how so? does it look like a big bubble with thousands of little lights?

Thinking long term is great and important but a 70,000 seat athletics stadium in any city is a challenge. Thats one reason why even a city like London only foresees a 25,000 seat capacity for its Olympic stadium as viable. Another example would be Turin's athletics stadium being torn down to convert it into a football venue along with many European cities.

Hoping and preparing for the Olympic Games which might happen some day perhaps not even before 2028 is a big risk for any city. The trend as we will see e.g. London 2012's Olympic Stadium and Chicago's 2016 bid, is the temporary olympic stadium. A large athletics venue, empty in many countries for most of the year is a big burden.

Think this is actually a thread that will bear no realistic results, as most will be biased to their stadia and their city. As I've said before many many many times, the stadium's suit the personalities of their respective cities. The most authentically African stadium is Soccer City, the stadium with the most wow-stand-out-factor is MM in Durbs, the most elegant with the best location within a city is Green Point. When it comes to cities, Cape Town is hands-down the most gorgeous with the most amenities for fans near the venue. Durban will have the best weather without a doubt and will be "summery," Johannesburg will give most fans the most authentic "new Africa, modern Africa" experience.

This is why I'm not voting in this poll.

I'm sorry but if anything looks like a seat cushion it's Soccer City. It's far more round.
