Cape Town Stadium
Vacation Travel Guide

Take a guided tour of this modern sports arena and then watch a soccer or rugby match while sitting among an energetic, vuvuzela-playing crowd.

Cape Town Stadium is a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena that dominates the landscape of Cape Town’s Green Point district. Built as a venue for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, today this 55,000-capacity stadium springs to life when it hosts regular soccer and rugby matches. Cape Town Stadium is also a location for performances by world-famous bands and musicians.

Sign up for one of the stadium’s guided tours. Appreciate the contemporary design and learn about special architectural aspects that support the imposing structure. See the playing field where some of the world’s most recognizable soccer stars have played. Feel like a professional sportsman as you visit the locker rooms.

The stadium is the primary home ground of Ajax Cape Town F.C., who play in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League. South Africa’s national soccer team, known locally as “Bafana Bafana,” also occasionally play here. Come on a game day and watch as the stands fill up with excited supporters dressed in their team’s jerseys. Buy a vuvuzela and join in the chorus of horns that resonates around the arena.

Rugby fans can enjoy national and international tournaments such as the World Rugby Sevens Series. This tournament welcomes teams from some of the world’s biggest rugby nations, including Australia, England and New Zealand.

Check the stadium’s event schedule for shows by big names from the music industry. Previous performers to have taken to the stage here include Coldplay, Lionel Richie, Michael Buble and Rihanna.

Situated in Green Point, the stadium is about a 10-minute drive from Cape Town’s city center and a 20-minute walk from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Public buses stop close by and there’s a large on-site car park. While here, explore the surrounding Green Point Park where there are children’s playgrounds, exercise stations, a labyrinth and other recreational features.

Tours of Cape Town Stadium take place from Monday to Friday and a fee is applicable. Buy event tickets at the stadium’s ticket office or at authorized outlets.
