Nelspruit 2010 pitch gets a R5m makeover
Nelspruit 2010 pitch gets a R5m makeover

The pitch at Nelspruit's new World Cup stadium was being relaid for R5-million because of insufficient drainage, officials said on Tuesday.

The pitch at the 46 000-seater Mbombela Stadium is being replaced after contractors stripped the original and dug up the clay surface underneath to allow proper drainage.

The changes were ordered after an inspection by Fifa in November.

This was after a rainy spell had left the new ground waterlogged.

The installation of a new pitch would be completed this week, said the city's World Cup co-ordinator, Differ Mogale.


Plans to open the stadium with a friendly between Ghana and Bosnia-Herzegovina on March 3 would go ahead, Mogale added.

"The pitch will be ready to play (on) by the end of February," Mogale said.
