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!
This webcam image updates every 10 minutes. Return to this page, or refresh it, to see the most recent image. Hopefully someone will clean the camera lens soon. Note also that the image is not all that exciting at night at the moment!
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.
