The newly built Green Point Stadium in Cape Town is soon going to be multiplying at an exponential rate. The city is furiously being whipped into shape to accommodate an estimated 400,000 soccer fans that will be going bananas in the street during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

It’s definitely not hard to get swept up in the excitement of the whole affair, especially now that you can get the lowdown on all the 2010 goings-on at the Green Point Visitor Stadium. To keep locals and tourists in the loop, the companies responsible for the stadiums construction built a visitor’s center in early 2008.

Housed in the presidential suite of the old Green Point Stadium, the astro-turfed hub is dedicated to all things footie and features photographic exhibits of local soccer legends and, best of all, a wicked 3D tour of the stadium.
