Profile

Springbok Park, now more commonly known by its sponsor's name, is a well-designed 20,000-seater stadium incorporating two large stands and lots of grassed banks, which attract large groups who wish to cook up a braai while enjoying their cricket.

The ground hosted its first one-day international in December 1992 when South Africa cruised to an eight-wicket victory over India. In October 2000 it was accorded full Test status with the visit of Zimbabwe.

The ground played its part in South African Test history when, fittingly, Allan Donald, who, as Free State cricketer played for many years here, became the first South African to capture 300 test wickets, during the first Test against New Zealand in November 2000.

One of the greatest innings ever played occurred early in 1994 when the former South African captain Hansie Cronje smashed 251 against the touring Australians, hitting 28 fours and six sixes.

Springbok Park boasts some of the best lights in the country and is regularly used for day/night matches, when the grassy banks become colourfully filled with spectators and a carnival atmosphere prevails. It is just 10 minutes walk from the city centre, with Bloemfontein coach station adjacent to the ground.
