Mbombela FAQ.pdf

Mbombela stadium was constructed between Feb 2007 and Nov 2009 and it took 1,400 workers to complete the building within 5.5 million man-hours. A total of 45,000m3 of concrete was used and the 36m Cantilever steel roof weighs 1,450 tons. Although the pitch is uncovered (no closing roof), 94% of the 43,500 seats are under roof, making Mbombela (along with Cape Town) the stadium with the most seats under roof during the 2010 Soccer World Cup tournament.


Mbombela was an extremely safe work-site; the most serious injury was a broken ankle. A record was set of 2.3 million continuous safe man-hours and although a tower crane collapsed through the roof during a freak storm in Jan 2009, no injuries resulted because the site was closed at the time.

The stadium was built at a cost of R 1,050 million (104 million Eur) of which 95% was funded by the South African National Treasury (via Department of Sport) and 5% by Mpumalanga Province.


Of the 5 new 2010 stadiums, Mbombela is the only wholly South African designed and was constructed at the lowest per seat cost of any of the World Cup stadiums. As far as possible, only South African materials were used and the entire roof is 100% fabricated in SA.

The stadium also boasts:
