The 70,000-seat facility's visually intriguing design includes a towering 1,100-foot, 30-story arch. Visually, the arch is designed to stand out against the South African skyline. Functionally, the arch provides support for the 700 metric tons of cable comprising the tensile roofing system's support system. As an added feature, patrons are able to ascend the arch by cable car for a bird's-eye view from above center field.
