Rusten­burg

Al­ti­tude: 1,500m above sea level Built: 1999

Ca­pac­ity: 44,530 Venue of Eng­land’s open­ing game on Fri­day. Named af­ter lo­cal tribe, the Bafo­keng, whose crocodile sym­bol is plas­tered around the £70mil­lion sta­dium. Only a 25-minute drive away from the tourist de­lights of Sun City but sub­urb where it is set, Pho­keng, has just one bar. A run­ning track around the pitch means fans are quite far from the ac­tion.
