About Newlands Cricket Grounds

It isn’t surprising that the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, is affectionately dubbed the most beautiful of its kind in the world. Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak stand as dramatic backdrops to the game; while the verdant, leafy suburb of Newlands makes for the ideal venue.

Did you know? Even if you are not a cricket fan or don't have a clue about cricket, it's worth going just to experience the vibe - it is a real "Cape Town Experience".

Newlands Cricket Ground has a capacity of 25 000, and has hosted some of the world’s best cricket since its first match in 1889, the year after it was established. Interestingly, this is only five years after test cricket was first played at Lords. This showcased South Africa as a global player in terms of this international game.

In addition to its intriguing history, which permeates the venue and every match to this day, Newlands Cricket Ground has fantastic facilities. It has ample ablutions and security, and parking is made available at various nearby locations for big games. Snacks and refreshments are available inside the stadium. There are licensed stalls too, for fans that want to sip on a cold beer or a glass of South African wine while they enjoy watching the game.

Spectators that are confined to wheelchairs or have physical disabilities can enjoy facilities designed to make access easier. All entrance gates are accessible via wheelchair, and there are elevators and adapted ablutions too. Stewards are available to assist anyone that needs it. Wheelchair bay tickets are sold at the gate, but it is best to buy these ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

The private, luxurious suites can be reserved in advance. Guests of these suites can enjoy private balcony seating, snacks, refreshments, and dedicated service.

Because it is located in the heart of Newlands, this cricket ground enjoys convenient accessibility to major malls and amenities. Cavendish Square Mall is nearby, while the City Bowl and the V & A Waterfront are about 15 or 20 minutes away. The Cape Town International Airport is less than an hour away.
