It's not too far from the motorways. But there's nothing around it as far as shops, restaurants, etc. I don't see how it will be anything other than a horrible environment for fans.

There are 2 new developments around Nasrec, but it seems like they are residential clusters with high walls making that are more boring. Do you guys remember Share World, I wish that they could refurb it again. We really need entertainment arear in that ara

Lucky, you I have to wait till November.

So your advice would be?
A stadium close to the city and entertainment areas?clubs etc?
Shops and nearby accommodation?

Is anyone else amused by how green the surroundings are in these stadium pictures? Sure, Jo'burg is green in the summer, but I wish the LOC would show us a render of what the area will look like in the dead of the highveld winter. Give the world a real glimpse of what they'll get to see instead of the greenery of CPT, DUR & PE.

There is a gold course to the left of the stadium site, so thats the greenery. To the right of the stadium its just brown,brown and brown.

ya it was the old design, and not from the current architectural firm. i do think that many of the attributes of the image in the first post have been minimalised...looking at the little glimpse you get from behind that mans shoulder in the pic..that would be sad
