Mbombela Stadium

Host City: Nelspruit
Population: 21,541
Stadium Capacity: 43,589

(Sports Network) - At an estimated cost of $145 million, the Mbombela Stadium is one of the newly-built grounds in South Africa that was constructed specifically for the World Cup.

Work on the stadium had to be delayed because the land being used was occupied by a school that had to be relocated first, but the Mbombela - which means "many people in a small space" - is now set to host four group-stage matches in the city of Nelspruit.

The stadium holds over 43,000 spectators and is located near the Kruger-Mpumalanga Airport.

It is also a nice addition to the city of Nelspruit, which previously had no top stadium to hold international matches.
