Fifa World Cup 2010 stadiums

The venues were approved by FIFA's executive committee at a meeting on the 17th March 2006 after being proposed by the South African local organising committee (SALCO). The early announcement of the venues was intended to help the cities which would then be able to learn from their German counterparts at the 2006 World Cup.

Stadium names

South Africa's sport stadiums have to change their names for the 2009 Confederations Cup and Soccer World Cup 2010 to accommodate Fifa's chosen sponsors (no advertisers, except Fifa's accredited brands, are permitted to display their advertising for the duration of the Soccer World Cup and Confederations Cup).
