Peter Mokaba Stadium

Host City: Polokwane
Population: 508,272
Stadium Capacity: 45,264

(Sports Network) - It is only fitting that a new stadium in Polokwane be named after Peter Mokaba, who was born and raised in the city and who is known across South Africa for his leadership against the apartheid regime.

The Peter Mokaba Stadium is a newly-built structure that holds over 45,000 spectators, and it will host four group-stage matches in this summer's World Cup.

The stadium is built adjacent to the old Mokaba arena - which held just 18,000 fans - and at a cost of $154 million, its design is based on the locally iconic Baobab tree.

The ground has yet to hold any major sporting events, but it will house an important Group A contest between France and Mexico as well as Argentina's game with Greece, among others.
