Mbombela Stadium - Nelspruit (South Africa)


Mbombela Stadium - Nelspruit (South Africa)

The Mbombela Stadium is situated in Nelspruit in northeastern South Africa. It is located in the Crocodile River Valley near the Kruger National Park. The name of the stadium comes from the word "Mbombela", which means "a lot of people together in a small space" (translated from siSwati).

The stadium is in the shape of a rounded rectangle and can thus offer all 46,000 visitors an unobstructed view of the playing field. Architectural highlights include the exterior supports resembling giraffes, which reinforce the stadium's proximity to the Kruger National Park, and the trees from this region which are located inside the stadium.
