Loftus Versfeld is the oldest stadium being used at the World Cup in 2010 and perhaps the most famous as well as it has been used for several big sporting events in South Africa over the years. The field on the site has been used for sports since 1903 and was named after Robert Owen Loftus Versfeld whowas the founder of organised sports in Pretoria.
The current capacity for the stadium is over 51,000 and needs very little improvement to be be ready to host some big games in the World Cup. It currently plays host too top Super 14 club The Bulls and also was the home of the 2009 Super 14 Final so is more than used to playing host to big sporting events.
