Five of the ten venues for the 2010 FIFA World Cup were purpose built. Of those five stadiums, three are clad in Taiyo Kogyo Group produced and installed tensile membrane roofs.
Birdair (NY, USA) manufactured and installed the steel frames, cables and membrane at Cape Town and Durban Stadiums. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium was a joint effort with Birdair providing the steel frame, Taiyo Kogyo (Osaka, Japan) manufacturing the membrane and Taiyo Membrane Corporation (Queensland, Australia) installing the membrane.
The reliable architectural fabric such as PTFE coated glass fiber membrane is used making them durable, resistant to the severe meteorological environment of this country. The heat reflective and optical transparency properties of this fabric allow the audience seating area to remain bright and comfortable. Distinguishing design made possible by the lightweight property of the fabric, has created new and exciting skylines in host cities across South Africa.

Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth was the first to be completed among those newly-built stadiums celebrating the completion in June 2009. This stadium located at North End Lake has a characteristic looks with the combination of membrane and metallic panels. At this stadium, eight matches including the quarter-final and third-place match will be held.
At Durban Stadium located in a tourist city on the Indian Ocean coast, the 350-meter-long and 100-meter-high arch has a dominating presence. This dynamic shape is made possible using approximately 46,000 square meters of fabric, many high tension cables, and one enormous steel arch supporting the structure. Seven matches including the semi-final will be held here.
Cape Town Stadium has a mesh membrane liner underneath the glass roof. This not only improves the function, including noise reduction and solar heat transfer reduction, but also creates a beautiful interior with indirect lighting effects at night. Here at this stadium, eight matches including the quarter-final and another semi-final will be held.

Taiyo Kogyo Group celebrates taking part in three World Cup projects in a row, since 2002 World Cup Korea/Japan. Taiyo Kogyo Group as a whole is proud to provide high quality space for a wide variety of purposes from mega-scale events to all sorts of national projects.
