The stadium to be used in Cape Town during the 2010 World Cup is now complete and the keys are now firmly in the pocket of Cape Town Executive Mayor Alderman Dan Plato.

“At a special ceremony to mark the completion of one of the world’s most spectacular stadiums, the ‘keys’ will be handed by the main contractors, Murray and Roberts and WBHO, to Cape Town’s Executive Mayor, Alderman Dan Plato,” the city said in a statement last week.

The stadium is a 68,000 all seater facility and construction began in March 2007 and it has been completed on schedule, if a little over budget.

During construction the stadium used 96,000 cubic metres of concrete, the roof has a total weight of 4,700 tons (about the same weight as 325 London double decker buses) and uses 9,000 glass panels to over 37,000 square metres of roof.

The stadium is also now officially named the Cape Town Stadium and will host eight matches during the World Cup including one semi final match.
