Cape Town Stadium open for visitors
The Cape Town Stadium Visitor Centre is now open to the public.
The City of Cape Town has designed a special tour where visitors are guided through the hallways of the stadium to the players’ change rooms, the on-site police cells and the VIP hospitality areas. Sport-lovers will also get the chance to “run onto the field” as they are given the opportunity to see the world-class pitch up close.
Visitors to Cape Town Stadium can also explore the Biodiversity Showcase Garden in the adjacent Green Point Park. It features over 300 plant species from the greater Cape Town region, as well as themed areas and displays including “Gardening for Biodiversity”, “Everything is Connected”, a Khoikhoi food garden, medicinal plants and a display of veld types.
Tours start daily from Tuesday to Saturday at 10h00, 12h00 and 14h00.
