The Moses Mabhid Stadium is a eco-friendly stadium in South Africa where some semi-final matches during the World Cup tournament will be played. The stadium features numerous green features, like a PTFE roof membrane that is 50% transparent and will provide natural light for the fans below.

There is also natural ventilation, energy-efficient heating and cooling, and the stadium can also collect rainwater. But the coolest green aspect of the Moses Mabhid Stadium is that the building was actually made from 30,000 cubic meters of concrete from the demolition of the old building. Very green!
