Ellis Park Stadium

Ellis Park Stadium

Ellis Park will be one of the important venues for the 2010 World Cup and will play host to some big matches during the tournament. It is one of the most famous stadiums in South Africa having played host to some great sporting occasions and a recent face-lift has seen the capacity raised to 62,000 from 57,000. This was achieved with a new tier on the North Stand and came along with changes including new media facilities and VIP areas.

Ellis Park is located in the centre of Johannesburg and was originally built as a Rugby Union stadium in 1928 and once again when it was rebuilt in 1982. It was the centre piece for the 1995 Rugby Union World Cup and played host to the final when South Africa defeated New Zealand on an emotional day for South Africans.

After the recent upgrade the stadium played host to the 2009 Confederations Cup Final as a warm-up for the main event in 2010 so it is well prepared for the big matches heading its way.
