Population: 3.2 million
Venue: FNB Stadium/Soccer City
Built: 1987, with major upgrades for the World Cup
Soweto, located to the southwest of central Johannesburg, played an outsize role in South Africa's apartheid years. The black township was the site of the signing of the Freedom Charter in 1955 and subsequently the scene of many protests against the white government, most famously the Soweto Uprising of 1976. Accounting for about 40 percent of Johannesburg's population, Soweto remains one of the city's poorest areas. The FNB Stadium, first built in 1987, underwent a $400 million renovation for the 2010 World Cup. With its distinctive shape reminiscent of an African calabash pot and cool nighttime lighting, the renamed Soccer City is the centerpiece of the tournament and will host games leading up to the July 11 final.
