The FNB Stadium is the third-biggest football arena in the world and the largest in Africa, with a capacity of 94 736.

It was built in 1989 and upgraded ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup – the first on African soil.

It is followed by the Borg El Arab stadium in Egypt, which has a capacity of 86 000. The arena was supposed to be the flagship stadium for Egypt's 2010 World Cup, but the North African nation famously lost out to South Africa.
