Whilst visiting Polokwane you should definitely see the Peter Mokaba stadium. It features great facilities and the design is inspired by the magnificent Boabab tree with giant “tree trunks” in its corners.It is situated approximately 5km from the city centre and just east of the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The initial planned upgrade of the old stadium was abandoned in favour of the R1,245,000,000 new stadium. It has a total seating capacity of 45 000 but this was however reduced to 41 700 for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.It is a football and rugby union stadium and home to the Limpopo Blue Bulls and Polokwane City FC.
The stadium is one of five new stadiums that were built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and was used intensely for training and matches. It was named after one of South Africa’s dedicated anti-Apartheid activists who was born in Polokwane and died in 2002.
This city hosts the largest number of registered football players in South Africa and the country’s second largest football fan base. Limpopo’s passionate football fans was rewarded with this beautiful stadium and this makes it a definite on your places to visit list.
