Newlands Sports Grounds

Newlands Rugby and Cricket Stadiums


Newlands Rugby Stadium is the headquarters of the Western Province rugby team. Our national team, The Springboks also play here occasionaly.

he best games to watch are the local derby's and especially if Western Province play The Blue Bulls from Pretoria.

This grand old ground has a capacity of 48 000 and is the 3rd oldest rugby stadium in world.

The playing field is unique in the Southern Hemisphere, containing 11km of polypropylene fibres, stitched between the grass, into the playing surface.

Newlands Rugby


The cricket stadium is close to the rugby stadium and is the headquarters of Western Province cricket team, The Cape Cobra's.
The most vibrant matches, are the shorter ones - Twenty20 and the one day games.

Many people, of which I am one, also enjoy the five day game.

As cricket is a summer game, make sure to take sunscreen.
But, in Cape Town you must always take something warm, because the weather can change quite rapidly.
