Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium lake reflextion

Today is the start of what must be the biggest event ever staged on the African continent. The 2010 FIFA World Cup opening game between Bafana Bafana (South Africa) and Mexico takes place in Johannesburg this afternoon (11 June 2010) while the first of 8 games in Port Elizabeth is tomorrow (Saturday 12 June 2010) between Greece and South Korea.
The games in Port Elizabeth take place at the magnificent new 48000 seater Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium next to the North End Lake. My favorite view of the stadium is across the lake at night when the lights are on.

  2. That stadium sure lights up the sky. Looks rather like flower petals. Nice shot across the lake Jonker.

    Hope you'll keep us posted on the games results.

  5. We watched the opening ceremony yesterday and the match between South Africa and Mexico. S.A should have won, they were the better team just had a little bad luck not scoring a second goal. This is a fabulous stadium.
