SuperSport Park is a 22,000-capacity cricket ground in Centurion, Tshwane, which is often the location for major local and international cricket matches.
SuperSport Park has a wicket that favours both batsmen and a variety of bowling styles, with the exception of spinners, usually providing spectators with a variety of play. The outfield is flat and fast thanks to a state-of-the-art drainage system. What’s more a number of international cricket captains have acknowledged SuperSport Park as having some of the best players’ facilities in the world. The grounds have hosted World Cup and Super Six matches, as well as a variety of other events, including road running events and concerts.
Originally cricket in Tshwane was played at Berea Park, a cricket ground which was opened in 1882 on the site of a cattle compound. By the early 1980s, it was generally agreed that the Berea Park grounds were far too small and were badly in need of repair. A new cricket venue was sought. In 1984 Centurion Park was officially opened. The ground was renamed SuperSport Centurion in 1998 and in 2001 became SuperSport Park.
Spectators love SuperSport Park for its wide grassy banks which make for a great family day out at the cricket. Just outside the stadium there are also a number of braai stands and the Castle Corner bar even has its own plunge pool.
The stadium is very conveniently located, just 10 minute walk from the Gautrain station.
