Moses Mabhida stadium has generated over R4 million

Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium has generated over R4 million through its sky car and bungee jumping facility in the past few months, the city said on Thursday.
 
"This proves that our stadium will never be a white elephant.

The over R4 million does not include money generated by businesses at the stadium,” said city manager, Mike Sutcliffe.

The stadium, which was completed months before the World Cup, had become one of South Africa's tourist attractions, he said.

He said more than 80,000 people had made the trip to the top of the 106-metre arch with a sky car to experience stunning views of the city and Indian Ocean.
 
“More than 25,000 people have taken the stadium tours to discover what goes on behind the scenes at a stadium and almost 3000 have taken the 550 steps to the top of the arch,” he said.
