Venerable old stadium that hosts some great rugby matches. The stadium itself is getting dated and could do with an upgrade in the general seating. Boxes are goop class, though.

The Stadium is steeped in a Chequered history. The locals are very knowledgeable and many locals support the visiting team , especially teams from New Zeeland. Makes for very vibrant atmosphere.

Thanks for the awesome games I have watched here over the years I enjoy coming to newlands everytime. Amazing atmosphere especially when the Stormers take on the Bulls. North vs South derby is always a classic.

We were lucky enough to get tickets to see the Springboks v the All Blacks. (25-24 to the latter and a great game.) The atmosphere outside and inside the ground is terrific.
