Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Pretoria, South Africa photo
Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Pretoria

Named after Robert Owen Loftus Versfeld, the founder of organized sports in Pretoria, the stadium has undergone various sponsored name changes, though locals have always referred to it as Loftus Versfeld.

Located in Tshwane/ Pretoria, it is one of the oldest stadiums in South Africa, and it has been used for major sporting events since 1903. The first concrete structure, which could accommodate only 2,000 spectators, was built by the City Council of Pretoria in 1923.

With a current seating capacity of 50,000, it has hosted many significant matches including during the 1995 Rugby World Cup and 1996 CAF African Cup of Nations.
