Description

Located in Centurion, Gauteng, and rated one of the 10 best cricket grounds in the world by Indian legend Kapil Dev, SuperSport Park boasts a wonderful grandstand and superb open grass embankments. The stadium has a capacity of 22,000 spectators and is the home ground for the Titans cricket team. It hosted its first One Day International in December 1992 and its first Test in November 1995, where the great Shaun Pollock made his debut for South Africa against England.

SuperSport Park (known as Centurion Park before being bought by the SuperSport television company) has always proved to be an excellent One Day cricket ground. The ground hosted five matches in the 2003 Cricket World Cup and was a popular venue for the 2009 Indian Premier League that was hosted in South Africa. It was also a venue for the ICC Champions Trophy 2009 and hosted the final on 5 October 2009, which is one of the greatest achievements for the stadium. It is also the ground where Sachin Tendulkar scored his 50th Test Match century. The ground is set to become the host of the annual international Boxing Day Test, when the test is played in South Africa, starting from the 2013/14 season.

Stadium highlights include: • 1984/5: Centurion Park, the new cricket stadium for the Northerns Cricket Union, was born out of frustration and the need to see the sport develop in the province. • 15 November 1986: Centurion Park made its controversial dew-laden debut as a provincial venue. • 1994: The stadium won a special distinction award in 1994 from the International Association for Sport and Leisure Facilities based in Cologne, Germany. • 1998: Stadium changes name to SuperSport Centurion.
