Blueprint for the future...

Things started as pipe dreams. They started as plans and visions. Now they are almost complete. I think that it is now a fitting time to take a trip down memory lane, to the beginning, to when the first sods were turned. The PE stadium is practically finished. I think that there is no real point to taking any more pictures of the stadium until June 7th when the open day will allow access to the tiers. The British Lions game on the 16th will be another great oppurtunity to capture the stadium in action. But these events are a number of weeks away, and what happens after them. Is that the end? No, I obviously plan to keep everyone updated on the other stadia nearing completion, as well as posting about the Confederations Cup as it takes place in South Africa. My plan is also to, one by one put together a series of pictures and comments describing the progress of the new 2010 stadia, the controversies, the difficulties endured at each new SA build. From the beginning, the first sod, to where we stand today. So expect posts on each new SA stadium: Soccer City, Green Point, Moses Mabhida, Nelson Mandela Bay, Mbombela, Peter Mokaba. Expect posts that capture what happened to get each stadium to where we currently stand.
