The FNB stadium is attractively & well designed for both sports & entertainment events. Parking can be tricky so I would recommend taking an Uber & queue for food & drinks upfront with surpluss as this can be time consuming

I went to a Football(soccer) match witht he JoBerg teams. I saw few white people, but everyone was super nice and uit was a party atmosphere. 2nd tier is reserved seating and get them opposite of 217 where there is more shade. What an experience!

This was previously one of the largest stadia in the world, and thanks to the 2010 FIFA World cup, I seem to think it could be in the top 3 in the world in terms of capacity(94000+), and is certainly the largest in the African Continent!

What is a review of a stadium supposed to be like? It is a decent stadium for sports and concerts. The food concessions are not great and it gets windy inside, but that is common to many stadiums.
