RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - NO SALES - NO ARCHIVES - TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY JUSTINE GERARDY - A reproduction of a picture depicting the future World Cup 2010 football stadium is seen on February 6, 2009 at the construction site of the National football stadium in Zimpeto, Maputo. The project has employed 273 Chinese and 331 Mozambicans so far, with the figures expected to reach 500 and 1000 respectively by the end of the project. The result will be a multi-facility sports park anchored by the 42,000 capacity stadium and is one of several Chinese government funded multi-million dollar projects in Mozambique. The stadium is the biggest sports construction since Mozambique's bloody independence from Portugal in 1975 and 16 years of ruinous civil war.

Bu the official site of the World Cup doesn't list Maputo...
This isn't a WC match venue. It's a training venue as evidenced by angcammoc's own source:

"Authorities now hope to attract fellow Portuguese-speaking 2010 teams, including five-time champions Brazil, to use the stadium to train for the soccer festival."

Mozambique will not hold any matches in the WC, but it will host some teams for training.

This stadium is set to have its first match in December (Mozambique vs Something).


This set of pictures is quite old (March), but, at least, it gives us an idea on how it looks like from the inside.
