This should help answer your question^Anton^; said:@kulani: Does the new Cape Town stadium take the exact same place of the former Cape Town stadium in Green Point? I mean, the construction site you showed in the pic is the same place where the old stadium used to be?
I was pretty sure of that, but since this is the first pic I see where the old stadium isn't there anymore, it made me doubt about it.
As iluvnaija explained, its all about the sports leagues developing to a level that can generate enough income to build and maintain plush stadiums. The government has too many things to fulfill so it would not and should not be its priority to build modern stadiums. Appreciating the current problems that are still experienced by the continent will also help you realize why modern stadiums are not exactly the most pressing of issues for Africa right now. It will happen, everything takes time i guess. Rome was not built in a day.AmerikaMosWanted; said:Africa needs to take care of their stadiums better.
That is the plan, but the reality is that its going to be costly to maintain these stadiums and only a few soccer clubs can operate these stadiums profitably after 2010. So its a tricky one i guess. It looks like the Cape Town one may be handed over to the Western Province Rugby union which is looking to move out of Newlands but they are still taking bids for would be operators of the stadium after 2010.iluvnaija; said:the new south afircan stadiums are going to be nice but who knows what will happen to them after the world cup..will dey be concessioned to the local league teams...cos i think tht will be a boost for the local teams....by the way egypt hs pretty gurls
Damn, i didn't even realize how close they look to the Tunisian stadiums. That's perhaps one of the biggest problems i have even with people in the advertising and creative circles in Ghana. I remember when we tried to get an advertising agency, they kept coming back with concepts that were clearly a cut and paste exercise until we decided to forget them and get a new young and hungry company that was willing to be creative.Hammelkar; said:This stadium is similar the one we have seen above in Tunisia. Both are great but originality is needed.
