The Stadium needs upgrading, and the parking is horrendous - so getting there is difficult. Not my fsavourite place

“A truly iconic stadium”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Watching rugby at Newlands is one of the best experiences a fan could have. Although the stadium is old, the facilities is generally adequate and well maintained. Views to the pitch is clear and unobstructed, fans are witty and passionate.

“When you love Rugby”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This stadium has the character of the stormers rugby team built into it. Not only do you get to enjoy the Game but you get to experience the colourful profile of the the capetonians, which includes the wonderful humour of the cape coloured people mixed with the students and avid rugby supporters.

“Home of Western Province Rugby”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I'm not a big sports fan but it's always good to go everyone now and again to take in the atmosphere. Most rugby loving men would majorly disagree and vow it's the only place to be on weekends ;)
