Using Newlands as my reference point, the beer cold drinks & food are more expensive and you obviously don't have a view of the mountain but overall good experience. We sat in block H, row D - if you don't like sitting in the sun,...More

Was here for the Mzansi Super League play off match. Although the game rained out it is always enjoyable to be at the Bull Ring!

South Africa leading the series 2-1 and the latest test in Cape Town wracked with controversy, no better place to go. Proteas leading for now, so hoping for a 3-1 series win. Apart from the game, it's a great old stadium, brilliant atmosphere and generally...More

Dream of a cricket fan to watch a cricket game at Wanderers. A bit far from Johannesburg airport, but one can reach wanderers using public transport, buses and trains. Closet train station is Rosebank, Uber and Taxify are cheap.
