South Africa’s football stadiums are gearing up for the start of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Both the Royal Bafokeng Stadium and the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium will host African Cup of Nation matches for the first time in their history.

The two arenas were used to great success at the 2010 Football World Cup.

The Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg will stage five Group D matches, two of them including many people’s favourites for the tournament Ivory Coast.

The stadium will also host one quarter-final while the opening match at the stadium, which features the Ivory Coast, takes place on January 22.

The Nelson Mandela Stadium in Port Elizabeth will stage five Group B matches, as well as one Group A match, a quarter-final, and the third-spot playoff match.
