Originally named Centurion Park, SuperSport Park, the home of Northerns (Northern Transvaal), is in easy access of Johannesburg, Midrand and Pretoria.
Rated one of the 10 best grounds in the world by Indian legend Kapil Dev, Supersport Park is a 22,000-seater that boasts a wonderful grandstand and superb open grassed embankments.
It hosted its first one-day international in December 1992 and its first Test in November 1995, a match in which the great Shaun Pollock made his debut for South Africa against England. Supersport Park has always proved to be an excellent one-day cricket ground, with a wicket that is conducive to free scoring but usually has a little in it for bowlers of all kinds. In Tests, the character is different, providing a fair contest between bat and ball. The ground hosted five World Cup matches in 2003, including two Super Six clashes.
