This blog will serve as a diary covering the construction of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ football stadium in Port Elizabeth/Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa as well as looking at progress on the other 2010 stadiums.
2nd year university at Rhodes is on the horizon for me and the workload and difficulty will only increase from here. After much deliberation, I have decided to call it quits on the blog in terms of new posts. The global recession has hit SA developments hard and the post World Cup hangover is still a reality. New developments are few and far between in SA at the moment. I leave you with this blog which could quite possibly be labeled as one of the best diaries of SA's 2010 build-up on the web. All the posts are readily available to be viewed by clicking the older posts link at the bottom of the page or the blog archive section to the right of this post. PE's World Cup stadium is obviously the focal point, yet all stadium progress has been charted in the lead up to the World Cup. In depth analysis of the architectural design and meaning of the new structures has been included in some posts. Take a stroll down memory lane and see for yourself.
I am a student doing a BSc degree at Rhodes University.
I created this blog to chart South Africa's progress in its preparations for the greatest show on Earth. This show is now complete so I leave you with possibly the best 2010 preparation diary on the web. Enjoy.
