Location: Polokwane

Capacity: 41,733

The Peter Mokaba Stadium is a football and rugby stadium in Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg), in the Limpopo province. With a seating capacity of 45 000, it is one of five stadiums that were built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The stadium is named after Peter Mokaba (1959-2002), a former leader of the ANC Youth League and hero of the struggle against apartheid who was imprisoned on Robben Island. Facilities include sports fields, office suites, function rooms, a conference centre, exhibition centre, and restaurant.

The crisp, modern design of the stadium was inspired by the ancient baobab tree that is revered by the local population.

The stadium was used intensely for training and matches. Therefore, the natural grass has been reinforced with artificial fibers, which anchors the field into a stable and a level grass surface of Desso GrassMaster.
