Time to move to Cape Town Stadium. Was always against it but Newlands is now an old stadium in terms of this modern world. Does not come close to competing with Twickenham, Murrayfield or Lansdowne Road. The move is now a natural progession and will hopefully bring us more tests. I also think that safety is now a major concern, especially on the Railway side.

We saw the Stormers and the Bulls play at Newlands Rugby Stadium. Unbelievable experience. So glad our friends were able to get tickets for us. :)

This is THE stadium to visit, especialy when the Stormers is playing a game against a top New Zealand Rugby team. Very well manicured pitch with the best atmosphere you may wish for if you like the game of rugby

You have to love the crowd, the game and the crowd! Whether you support The Stormers or Blue Bulls, we love watching live games. Ample security, loads of parking throughout Newlands residential area and you can braai before the game on the local school field. Slat a tjop en 'n dop ne!
