Polokwane on track

The Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane is certainly on track to meet its FIFA deadline. This 45,000 seat venue is perhaps one of the less controversial venues, with great progress being made. The majority of the seating structures are in place or will be in place shortly, while the roof trusses appear to be in place, awaiting the inner glass section and the steel membrane.

Located 5km from the city centre, the venue has been designed by AFL architects, the same team responsible for the design of the expansion of the "Theatre of dreams", Old Trafford in Manchester. The Limpopo province has the largest number of registered football players in the country and this new venue will certainly provide a great arena for generations to come.
