  • So.... there are lots of things that let the stadium down a bit, the facilities are somewhat dated, there are not enough toilets, the food on offer is what was available at football matches in the UK....  more

  • Newlands, home of Western Province Cricket, has been described by many, together with the Adelaide Oval in Australia, as one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the World. Nestled behind and at the foot of Table Mountain it is one of the most picturesque places in the world to watch cricket. Over the past five years numerous changes have been made to the ground. This has slightly taken away from its former splendor. Large portions of the grass embankments have been replaced by pavilions increasing the seating capacity to 25,000.
  • Legendary cricket ground
