Green Point Stadium

Host City: Cape Town
Population: 1,300,000
Stadium Capacity: 66,005

(Sports Network) - Green Point Stadium is one of several new structures built specifically for the World Cup, and it will be the site for one of two semifinals in addition to seven other matches.

The structure cost over $300 million to build and construction was delayed several times because of strikes over low wages being paid to workers. But it was still finished on time and is being hailed by the hosts as one of the more modern stadiums in the world.

With a capacity of just over 66,000, Green Point Stadium has a retractable glass roof that will allow more natural light onto the pitch, and it adheres to strict green conditions.

Following the World Cup, Green Point will likely be used by one of Cape Town's professional teams, with Ajax Cape Town and Santos being considered.
