About Peter Mokaba Stadium

Polokwane is the capital city of the South African province of Limpopo, and the proud home of the Peter Mokaba Stadium. This is one of the five stadiums that needed to be constructed for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ (as opposed to the other five that were existing, but needed renovations and upgrades).

Did you know? There is a VIP area that hosts up to 500 VIPs, a VIP reception area and lounge, as well as offices and storage areas.

It was built next to the old Peter Mokaba Stadium and was used especially for training as well as for a number of the World Cup matches, inviting dedicated fans from around the world to descend on Limpopo and indulge themselves in world-class sport. It was named after one of South Africa’s dedicated anti-Apartheid activists, who was born in Polokwane.

Although the Peter Mokaba Stadium was built with a capacity for 45 000 spectators, this was reduced to 41 700 for the World Cup. Interestingly, the stadium’s design was inspired by the baobab tree, which is often said to look like it is upside down, with its roots emerging out of the ground and reaching for the sky. The stadium’s steel structure gathers together at each corner of the stadium and is supported by structures that resemble massive tree trunks.

The stadium is less than five kilometres from the city centre of Polokwane. This area boasts a number of other sights and activities; including the Polokwane Museum, Mokopane Biodiversity Centre, and the Polokwane Bird and Reptile Park.
