TThe term “sporting cathedral” fits Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium, a 2010 FIFA World Cup™ stadium, to perfection. Its classic design, which incorporates elements of the national flag, has made it one of the country's favourite sports stadiums.
The feature that stands out most at the Moses Mabhida Stadium is its grand arch. At 350m long and 106m high, the arch is symbolic of a diverse nation, unified in its love of sport. The two legs of the arch on the southern side of the stadium join together on the northern side, representing a once-divided nation now unified.
This Durban sports stadium was built at a cost of around R3.4 billion, across the road from the rugby stadium most popularly known as Kings Park. It has been widely acclaimed as an architectural masterpiece and has already achieved iconic status.
