The client, Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) Municipality, had to deliver a stadium able to accommodate FIFA overlay requirements. These requirements were provided and monitored by the local organising committee. No clear brief was available at the start of the project. The project management team developed an inception report incorporating a business plan with the assistance of a key number of specialist consultants. At that stage, the proposed site and limited FIFA Design Guidelines were available. The FIFA document required a capacity of 45 000 seats and the outcome of the business plan indicated that a facility with a capacity of 27 000 permanent seats (at the time of the study) was viable.
