Newlands Sahara Park Cricket Stadium

Cricket at Sahara Park Newlands Cricket Stadium

A mere 700m walk from Rondebosch Manor, Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town is a South African cricket ground. It's the home of the Cape Cobras, who play in the SuperSport Series, MTN Domestic Championship and Standard Bank Pro20 competitions. It is also a venues for Test matches. Newlands is regarded as one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world, being overlooked by Table Mountain and Devil's Peak. It is close to Newlands Stadium, which is a rugby union and football venue.

The ground hosted its first Test match in March 1889 when England defeated South Africa by an innings and 202 runs. As of June, 2006, there have been 40 Test matches played at the ground of which South Africa has won 13, their opponents 19 and 8 which ended in a draw. The last team besides Australia to beat South Africa there was New Zealand, in 1961.

The first One Day International played at the ground was in December 1992 when South Africa beat India by 6 wickets. As of June, 2006, there have been 28 One-day Internationals played at the ground including five in the 2003 Cricket World Cup. South Africa has won 19 of its games there, and the opposition 3 (the West Indies being the most recent opposition victor in 2002).

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 Large portions of the grass embankments have been replaced by pavilions increasing the seating capacity to 25,000.

Newlands is one of the few cricket grounds in South Africa that tends to favour spinners. Most grounds tend to favour pacemen or batsmen, but the Western Cape has had a history of having very good spinners, a recent example being Paul Adams.

The ground has also hosted exhibition matches in Australian rules football. In 1998, a crowd of 10,123 saw the Brisbane Lions play Fremantle.

The first official matches were played at Newlands on Saturday 31 May 1890 when Villager and Stellenbosch met in such muddy conditions that the curtain-raiser between Bishops and Hamiltons had to be cancelled. The records show that the university side won by a goal to a try´ - the goal´ was described by the legendary Fairy Heatlle as the most remarkable dropped kick I have seen. The famous ground was to see many more such unforgettable moments.

Newlands as we see it today was purchased, constructed, demolished and finally re-developed at huge cost and commitment over the past century entirely by the efforts of dedicated members of the Western Province Rugby Football Union and its administrators - to whom this magnificent stadium is a fitting monument. And we must never forget those faithful supporters, who have followed the fortunes of their teams week in, week out in spite of often inclement weather.

Newlands is a fitting testament to those men and women who have supported and believed in not only the WPFRU but in the game of Rugby Football. The stadium, and the ground the stadium is built on, is owned by the WPRFU.

Featured in its history is the honour of hosting the opening match of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, where host nation South Africa upset the reigning world champions Australia 27-18, in what would be the beginning of a fairytale story that saw Springbok Captain Francois Pienaar lift the Webb Ellis trophy at Ellis Park at the end of the tournament. Coach Jake White and Captain John Smit returned to Newlands in 2007, in the final leg of the country-wide World Cup victory parade following the Boks´ triumphant Rugby World Cup tournament in France, to show off the Webb Ellis trophy to a near capacity Newlands Faithful, who had pitched at the ground to welcome the Boks back home.

In 2009 Newlands also hosted the British and Irish Lions in two non-test matches, when the Northern Hemisphere giants played Vodacom WP on 13 June and an Emerging Springbok outfit on 23 June. Both matches were well supported by both local and international fans, despite a typical wet and wintery Cape climate. The British and Irish Lions claimed victory a tightly contested match against the Blue and White Hoops of WP (23-26). A massive effort by the Emerging Springboks in the final quarter and a decisive conversion from the touchline in the 80th minute by Province´s Willem de Waal drew the scorers equal at 13-all in the stormy mid-week match.

Newlands has taken on various names over the years as the Western Province Rugby side took on different sponsors, such as Norwich and Fedsure, but today the name stands proudly alone thanks to the discretion of their previous two sponsors, Investec and Vodacom.

"We elected to change the name of the stadium to reflect its popular name rather than calling it Investec Newlands", Raymond van Niekerk, global head of group marketing at Investec said shortly after announcing the sponsorship.

"We've tried to adopt a unique approach to stadium naming and branding, " Van Niekerk said. "While the rich history, heritage and tradition of Newlands is retained, the commercial value inherent in the modern trend of selling stadium naming rights is preserved through the use of the Investec logo and typeface."

Rob Wagner, MD of WP Rugby commented: "Stadium naming rights sales have become lucrative and important elements of any sporting body's income streams. We are very happy with the way both Investec and Vodacom have opted to utilise their naming rights."

Newlands, home of Province and Stormers Rugby, has become world renowned for being the most supported teams in the modern game, regardless of log position - with its spectators now commonly known as “The Newlands Faithful”. In 2002, Newlands welcomed its millionth spectator, to watch a Stormers match, through the gates, with more than 2 million fans having come out to support the popular Super Rugby franchise over the past 12 years. In both 2008 and 2009, Newlands recorded a total annual attendance of more than 500 000 spectators, with an average of 17 rugby fixtures a year.
