Yes 70,000, this is not the final design, that will be completed by the german architects, BMP, these renderings indicate the location, the retractable roof will also be more visible in the final stadium design, the current stadium is the generic stadium.Rausa said:That's very nice. Capacity, will it be 70.000? Quite impressive if so..
They design has not yet been completed. I have always believed that the upper tiers need to have a transparent facade to allow for views, but don worry this might still happen..why?? After the world cup the third tier will be removed to reduce capacity to 55,000. The upper tier will consist of offices and conference space, space which will need views and windows, so im sure it would be incorporated into the intial design. The current stadium in picture is just an illustration of the magnitude of the stadium in terms of height, space etc.canarywondergod said:thats such a fantastic setting for a stadium, its a shame they couldnt utilise those views onto table mountain more, for instance the wavy corners could be made more open like at the emirates stadium just to have some sort of view, i know you should probably be concentrating on the game but its just a nice touch they could add as those views really are fantastic
According to the City of Cape Town press release on the WBHO/Murray & Roberts Green Point stadium contract being approved by the city's bid-adjudication committee, the stadium will not be finished until the end of January 2010...........etc.
David Hugo who heads the bid ajudication committee says that there will be no negotiating regarding the October 2009 date for completion. The contractors are prepared to work 24hr shifts to ensure that the stadium is completed.Doesn't FIFA mandate that the stadiums need to be open 12 months prior to the Opening Ceremony. Cos there was such a rush for the Allianz Arena.
