Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa

Johannesburg was the global capital of soccer in 2010

Soccer City is the most important stadium of the 2010 World Cup and an outstanding example of scale, innovation, design and technology.

As part of a massive renovation project Soccer City was made ready for the World Cup. Working alongside Damon Lavelle of architectural firm Populous, Bob van Bebber and Piet Boer of Boogertman Urban Edge + Partners created a new high-tech façade made of glass-fiber-reinforced concrete coloured with Bayferrox® pigments – a design that is setting new standards in architecture. 

To manufacture the coloured panels, the glass-fiber-reinforced concrete was pigmented with liquid colours from Harold Scholz using the world renowned Bayferrox® pigments

Johannesburg foi a capital do futibol do mundo em 2010.

Soccer City, o mais importante estádio da Copa do Mundo, é um excelente exemplo de ousadia, inovação,   desenho e tecnologia na construção.

An intelligent and innovative facade concept communicates the flair and unique culture of the African continent.

Both visually and technically, Soccer City has become one of South Africa’s newest landmarks and, even without the added draw of the World Cup, is proving a major attraction for visitors from across the globe.

One of the largest soccer arenas in the world. The Soccer City Stadium can accommodate 88,958 spectators.

Panels made of glass-fiber-reinforced concrete coloured with Bayferrox® pigments to create traditionally African hues transform Soccer City into a unique visual experience.
