Well as I said previously the first tier alone seated 70,000, with an entire second tier and a tier inbetween that I do believe that the capacity should reach 100,000 unless the legroom is amazing.

The Soccer City corresponds to highest technical standards of modern football stadiums. Also the visual appearance of the Soccer City designed by the South African architects of Boogertman Urban Edge & Partner sets a landmark for the FIFA world cup 2010. For the realisation of the unconventional design the architects rely on European know-how. A football stadium like an “African Pot” that shines in typical African colours: The expertise of two Austrian companies makes this unconventional project possible: Rieder Smart Elements produces 30,000 square meters of fibreC elements forming the façade of the stadium. Valenta Metallbau develops more than 100,000 specially designed steel elements for the sub-construction. The outer skin of the arena spans 43,000 square meters in total. The concrete elements are produced in the Bavarian Kolbermoor in Germany. The new façade will be assembled to the sub-construction on site in South Africa. Therefore Rieder and Valenta are going to erect an own field fabric. Through its excellent eco-profile, the energy consumption of fibreC is significantly lower compared to alternative façade products: The production of fibreC has 40% less global warming potential than fibre cement panels or aluminium sheets. HPL (high pressure laminates) cladding panels even use five times more energy than fibreC. The realization of the entire building covering will be completed within a 12 month period. The Soccer City project currently employs 3.000 people and is therefore the world’s largest stadium construction site. The completion of the overall project is scheduled for January 2009.

Yes. But the exact roof material, facade material and steel structure has been finalized. Should look great at night.

Why is it that there are allways so few pics how a stadium will look from the inside... I have not seen one realy.
This goes for a lot of stadiumdesigns, they never realy show you the inside, which to me is the most important of all.

True.

I think this is the best view we have of what it will look like from the inside.
