Rugby fans in Cape Town tend to turn every major fixture into a big social event, arriving early to have a braai (barbecue) before the game, and partying into the early hours of the next morning afterward. Venues close to the stadium to consider for after-match entertainment include the Springbok Pub, Foresters Arms, Tiger Tiger and Tin Roof.

The Stormers (Super Rugby) and Western Province (Currie Cup) are known for playing an exciting brand of rugby, which is part of the reason they have such a loyal group of supporters.

Tickets

The ticket office is in Boundary Road, next to the Western Province Rugby Shop. You can also buy tickets through Computicket for most matches.

Note that there is often a cold breeze blowing through the stadium, so bring a jacket along to be safe, even on a warmish evening.

The first official rugby match at Newlands was played in 1890, and the stadium was a venue for several 1995 Rugby World Cup matches, including a semi-final.

Visit the SA Rugby Museum at the stadium to see memorabilia and exhibitions.
