Description

Buffalo City Stadium (also known as the BCM Stadium) is a multipurpose stadium in the suburb of Arcadia in East London, South Africa. The stadium has a capacity of 16 000 and, as the home stadium of Border Bulldogs, it is mostly used for Rugby Union matches. It was also one of the venues for the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

The stadium has undergone 3 name changes. Originally, it was named Border Rugby Union Grounds, which was changed to the Basil Kenyon Stadium, after the Springbok player who captained the Springboks on a successful 3 month tour of England in 1951. It was more recently known as the ABSA Stadium, for sponsorship reasons. In a bid to be used as team base camp for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, it was upgraded to meet the necessary requirements, which included the installation of high-quality lighting. The stadium was renamed Buffalo City Stadium according to its geographical location.
