Firstly, rugby is an institution in South Africa. Newlands is the only grounds that have its faithful attending games irrespective of the performance of the side - in good times and bad. Nothing better to end a Saturday than spending it at Newlands. If you want colourful commentating - be sure to get a seat in the lower stands. If... More

Went to Newlands to watch Stormers vs Jaguares in the Super Rugby series. Tickets went on sale far too late. I phoned Newlands a few times and they told me the wrong dates when Computicket were putting them on sale. By mid February they weren't available for a game on 4 March! At R160 they were good value for seats... More

First season of the game excited to get tickets but what a state of affairs Newlands Rugby stadium is in. The back entrance only had 2 entrees open into the stadium , no security or ushers to assist which gate you should be heading in to. Even though there is a TV it was not on - therefore no replays-...

This was our first visit to the stadium, and it really was a pleasure. To get into the stadium was easy, the security was helpful in getting us to our seats, the atmosphere was awesome and the food that they on offer caters to every ones tastes.

Stadium is situated in a great part of town but also very residential which can make parking tricky. Recommend to rather catch a train as station is right there. A full stadium can be some queues trying to get in a leaving.

Enjoyex rugby at Newlands but unfortunately the local team has lost some skill. Great location with parking nearby. Good local support!

Because it is so compact you really feel part of the game here. Plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby as well!

Had to have a look around the stadium even though I could not get inside. It looks very impressive from the outside managed to look threw the fence and got a glimpse of the pitch.

Newlands Rugby Stadium is more, far more than a Rugby Stadium - it is an integral part of Cape Town & is treated / visited with a certain reverence. It is home to the DHL Stormers / Western Province & also hosts Test Matches in season. It's easy to access, although parking in the surrounding area can be a nightmare... More
