Loftus Versfeld Stadium

Loftus Versfeld Stadium is the beating heart of passionate rugby in Pretoria, South Africa.

 The 50 000 seater stadium has recently been upgraded for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup, to be hosted in South Africa.

In 1932 the stadium was renamed to Loftus Versfeld in honor of Robert Owen Loftus Versfeld, the founder of organized rugby in Pretoria.

Loftus Versfeld Stadium is the home of the Blue Bulls provincial rugby team.

To qualify as an official 2010 Fifa World Cup stadium upgrades were done to the floodlights, sound system, scoreboards and stadium roof were improved, and renovation was completed in January 2009.

Quality Pretoria accommodation can be found nearby the Stadium.
