The Moses Mabida Soccer Stadium and area hotels

Durban hosts the FIFA Soccer World Cup

Sunny Durban in South Africa is well known as Africas Playground and is proud to be the host of the upcoming Soccer World Cup with some exciting fixtures scheduled to be played in the brand spanking new Moses Mabida Soccer stadium.

You will note form the pictures above how close the new stadium is in fact to the beachfront and the Golden Mile which is home to some of the most prestigious hotels in South Africa.

Durban has always played second fiddle on an international scale with most travellers heading into Cape Town first due to the marketing engine that creates it as the place to visit. What travelling tourists don't know is that we have managed to keep Durban a secret for many years from the international traveller. Why ? because it is still cheap to visit and we dont want the prices going through the roof for tourism like Cape Town.

Durban in general

Durban has in the past hosted the A1 Grand Prix Motor Racing and has for many years hosted numerous international events such as the Super 14(soon to be Super 15) Rugby Challenge, The International Swimming Championships, The World Surfing Champs, The World Surf Ski Challenges, The Dusi Canoe Marathon and the Comrades Ultra Marathon to name a few.

The International Convention Centre sits within the Durban Sporting Precinct with the Durban Hilton Hotel integrated into the grounds. In the picture above you will notice the Casino Complex between the Moses Mabida Soccer Stadium and the start of the beachfront hotels.

The areas surrounding the soccer stadium have medium density residential accomodation, the train station infrastructure and the large empty grassed areas are reserved for outdoor fans and supporter areas before and after the soccer matches.

So, I hope at some stage in the future you may find time to look into Durban as a stop over in your vacation and if you're just a soccer fan then stay tuned for one of the most exciting Soccer World Cups ever. Good luck to all those countries participating from a sunny Durban climate.
