18,000 seats

Soshanguve Giant Football Stadium

The stadium was used as a training field for teams participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup after being rebuilt in 2009.

It was also used as a public viewing area for residents to watch matches.

The planning and preliminary design of the stadium entailed the design of the full approximately 45,000 seater capacity stadium, however only the western pavilion was finally constructed, along with VVIP, VIP, player and full media facilities.

The pavilion consisted of a double-tier arrangement, which ensured that all spectators had full view of the entire playing surface. The structure was designed in a modular portal frame arrangement, so that the future phases could easily be developed without significant interruption to the western pavilion.
