Free State Stadium

Bloemfontein, Free State Province

More or less slap bang in the middle of South Africa is Bloemfontein/Mangaung which in the seSotho language means “place of cheetah”. The city is famous for its fanatical sports supporters, and there should be a lively atmosphere there when the tournament hosts take on France. The stadium had been recently revamped and now can now seat 45,000 people. This is largely a rural area and natural beauty will be an attraction for many; but at the same time the city is lively and vibrant with plenty of shops and malls and a busy night life.
