FNB Stadium is currently the largest stadium in Africa since its capacity was increased to 94,700 for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In July 2010, controversial future plans were announced to rename the stadium The National Stadium after the World Cup for international football and rugby matches.

This was resolved after a South Gauteng High Court decision that owing to a 2007 naming rights agreements with First National Bank, the stadium’s name would revert to FNB Stadium.
