World Cup: The tribe that built a football stadium

The Royal Bafokeng Stadium near Rustenburg will host some of the key early games during the 2010 World Cup, which starts in one month's time.

Built and managed by the Royal Bafokeng Nation, Africa's richest tribe, it is the only privately-owned arena being used - with the profits ploughed back into the local community.

The tribe has been able to afford such a stadium because of its mining rights over the huge reserves of platinum in the area.
