Damn it still looks like there's a lot of work to be done. When are these games supposed to be held?

I know.... But it still looks great! Better than the one Maputo made for 2011:

^That Stadium was made with the help of the Chinese...

The Games are to open on the 4th of September 2015 and are to be closed on 19th September 2015.

They look really good, but I'm worried about the time... The Complex was designed by a Group named PTW Architects.

For what I read, Congo used the help of chinese workers to work in the venues. Other countries like Angola (for the ACN in 2010) and Mozambique (All Africa Games in 2011) have done the same thing.

Here's a more recent update of the venues construction

The Interior of the Stadium looks great but about a 1/4 of the Stadium is filled with Spectators, 3/4 of it is left empty... :unsure:

I'm looking at it right now, looks pretty full to me.

Oh wait nevermind now I see what you mean haha. But one side is not being filled with spectators for a good reason. There is a lot of seating available at the top. So right now it looks over half full.


I love how excited they get just to see themselves on the jumbotron. And some of these guys are dressed like they're ready to see a soccer game lol. I've seen Brazil jerseys and I saw a couple with US shirts on.

omg when will this thing officially start??? I've been watching almost an hour of absolutely nothing! lol

IKR, I was thinking the same exact thing - All I see is the Camera showing different people waving at the Jumbotrons after seeing themselves...

Just saw the exterior of the Stadium, Looks awesome but some lights would really make it glow, I can't see much landscape...

Oh gawd please tell me we weren't waiting for the heads of state to arrive this whole time!

It seems that way, Simillar to was happened at the 1991 Pan Ams CC in Havana - It was delayed for like an hour because Castro was late..
