该改造由布格门建筑事务所（Boogertman Urban Edge and Partners）联合人众事务所（Populous）设计完成。它可以容纳94000名观众观看这场盛事。这个设计从众多的设计概念中获胜，其中包括灵感来源于约翰内斯堡已经不在的矿堆的概念、非洲城邦里的歌特拉（Kgotla，公共聚会的地方）的概念、非洲地图水平化展示（屋顶像个荒凉的星球，由热带树木支撑着，来展示南非的丰富矿产）的概念、南非国花山龙眼（protea）的概念。

The 2010 World Cup to be held in South Africa is less than one year away. Being perhaps the most important international competition in sports in the world, we would like to start featuring some of the stadiums that will host this magnificient competition.
Soccer City Stadium is located in Johannesburg and it was originally built in 1987. Among other important events, it hosted the first massive speech from Nelson Mandela after his liberation in 1990. However, it was completely renewed for the upcoming World Cup, becoming the stadium where the starting and the final game will be played.
Designed by Boogertman Urban Edge and Partners in partnership with Populous, it will allow for 94,000 spectators to enjoy the best soccer in the world. The design of the stadium was selected from a series of concept designs ranging from acknowledgement of Johannesburg’s disappearing mine dumps; the kgotla (defined by the tree) of the African city state; the African map as a horizontal representation, which included the roof as a desert plane supported on tropical trees set within the mineral wealth of Southern Africa; to a representation of the protea, South Africa’s national flower.
The calabash, or African pot, was selected as being the most recognizable object to represent what would automatically be associated with the African continent and not any other. The calabash, or ‘melting pot of African cultures’, sits on a raised podium, on top of which is located a ‘pit of fire’. Thus the pot sits in a depression, which is the ‘pit of fire’, as if it were being naturally fired.
