After its 2010 FIFA World Cup™ stadium upgrades, Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg now has a capacity of 62,000.

The ground is due to host five group games, one second-round match and one quarter-final. The stadium is most famous for hosting the 1995 Rugby World Cup final, in which South Africa scored an emotional 15-12 win over New Zealand to become world champions.

The image of then South African President Nelson Mandela, dressed in a South African Rugby jersey, while handing South African captain Francois Pienaar the Webb Ellis Cup has become one of the most iconic sports images of the 20th century.

Ellis park was also the stadium of choice for the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup final between Brazil and USA. After trailing 2-0 at half time, Brazil came back to win 3-2.
