Bloemfontein: Free State Stadium


Bloemfontein's Free State Stadium is also called “Vodacom Park.” It was built in 1995 and held the rugby World Cup that year. This stadium is the home field of two professional football teams, the Free State Cheetah team and the Central Cheetah Team. In addition, it is also the host field of the South African super-league team, the Bloemfontein Celts.

Although the Free State Stadium has only existed for 15 years, it has undergone a large-scale transformation to welcome the World Cup. The biggest transformation as well as the most investment is setting the second row of chairs for the west side of the main stand, which has increased the stadium capacity from 36,500 seats to 48,000. The other changes include installing a new electronic scoreboard, improving the illumination device, installing a modern sound system as well as restoring a media center.
