A reproduction of a picture depicting the future World Cup 2010 stadium in Zimpeto, Maputo.The project has employed 273 Chinese and 331 Mozambicans so far, with the figures expected to reach 500 and 1000 respectively by the end of the project. The result will be a multi-facility sports park anchored by the 42,000 capacity stadium. It is one of several multi-million dollar projects in Mozambique funded by the Chinese government. The stadium is the biggest sports construction since Mozambique's bloody independence from Portugal in 1975 and 16 years of ruinous civil war.
