View Project

Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium was designed by FIFA World Cup stadium specialists GMP ARGITEKTEN with local firms GAPP Architects, Dominic Bonnesse Architects, Architectural Design Associates. The stadium was built at a cost of R2.05 bill for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and hosted 7 World Cup games including the 3rd place playoff. It has a capacity of 46,000.

Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha is an architectural marvel, blending beauty with functionality, shielding visitors from harsh sun and winds. Seating 46,000, it offers scenic lake views. 
 
This strategically placed stadium has revitalized the once-overlooked North End Lake area, offering potential for sports and leisure activities. Beyond football and rugby, it caters to water sports and cycling, filling a unique city niche. 
 
Elevated by the lake, it resembles a blooming flower, with a glazed suite level marking the endpoint of the colonnades. The roof girders provide shade and protection. 
 
A new cycling path enhances leisure options around the stadium and lake, turning Prince Alfred Park into a bustling public space.
