Take some distance...

... before plunging in the event atmosphere. Soon, South African stadiums will resound with the songs from the football fans all over the planet.

 Spot Image, a subsidiary of Airbus Defence and Space, presents the 10 stadiums, as seen from space by the Kompsat-2 satellite. Five of the stadiums have been renovated and the surrounding areas improved. The other five have been specially built. The satellite images show how the stadiums — a symbol of the new face of South Africa — integrate with the urban landscape.
