Soccer City Johannesburg World Cup Stadium Webcam

Edit 03 May: This Webcam feed (via the MTN Webcam service) is presently unavailable. We’ll continue to monitor this and restore the link as soon as possible. If anyone finds a working camera, please drop a link into the comments for us. Thanks!

My recent post regarding the recent FIFA visit to SA post reminded me of this link that I have been meaning to post up for some time now.

It shows a “semi-live” webcam feed of the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg. This is the venue for the opening and closing matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The stadium has essentially been rebuilt from scratch and construction is now nearing completion. The end result will see a world-class stadium capable of accommodating 94,700 spectators!

The outer skin of the stadium is represents an African calabash or pot and, once completed, the stadium will be lit from the bottom at night – the fire on which the pot sits. We’ll put more info together on this, and the other World Cup stadia as we get closer to the tournament itself. We’ll also find similar webcam views of some of the other match venues.

  1. This stadium is a very impressive piece of work! I must say I am proud that this stadium is in my city. Now Imaginr the U2 360 world tour in this 100 000 seater + standing!!!

    Let's make it happen!!!!

  2. Awesome idea! Where do we sign the petition??

    • sorry, the links are not working anymore…..

      • And they're back…

  3. Even with the dirty lens, that looks like an incredible stadium! Just seen it now with the picture showing the rising sun reflecting off the "skin" – wonderful! Bravo SA!

    • You need to see it for real Rainman! I drove past it last week, and it is HUGE! The pictures just do not do it justice. Have a great aerial pic of the stadium with the city in the background that I'll put up soon.

      We may not win the tournament, but we sure will have some amazing stadiums around the country at the end of it all.

  4. It's grey and rainy in Joburg today. And the webcam view is really dodgy. If you want a better view to see what the stadium looks like, see my new post here: Great View of Soccer City Stadium
