Just curious. I know that this stadium is hosting the second match on opening day, but is there a specific reason why it isn't hosting the official opening while Soccer City in Johannesburg is?

It would've been great if the first images of the tournament to spectators around the world are these stunning aerial shots of the stadium.

Yeah, honestly. They could do it like Germany, where Allianz hosted the opening match and Berlin the final one. And I think it would promote more tourism to SA than Jo'burg.

Johannesburg is the center of soccer in SA. it's is where it is most popular.
The Johannesburg extended region has twice the population of Cape Town area and soccer city is the largest stadium.

To me it's only logical that Johannesburg has the opening and closing games.

Logical in some ways but Cape Town has always been the opening ceremony city.
Cricket world cup, rugby world cup, IPL etc etc

This stadium would be amazing for an opening.
Just visited the construction site. There is no bad seat, no poor views from inside the stadium to the surrounds. Its remarkable.

Lower fabric mesh liner of the roof being installed. Very very similar to that of Berlin Olympiastadion.
