Johannesburg Stadium Hand Over Set for April

Officials claim that Johannesburg's Soccer City Stadium will be ready in time to hand over to FIFA by April, slightly past a previously set deadline.

The initial deadline for delivery had been mid-March.

The grounds around the stadium, located between the famous township of Soweto and downtown Johannesburg, remain filled with construction equipment.

But the stadium will still be handed over Wednesday to local officials, who will then deliver it Fifa, said Sibongile Masibuko, the provincial head of World Cup preparations.
