Loftus Versfeld is a rugby and football stadium situated in Pretoria. A sporting landmark in the capital city, Loftus Versfeld started out in 1914 as the Eastern Sports Ground.
As rugby’s popularity grew, a spectator stand was added in 1932 and the facility was renamed Loftus Versfeld, in honour of rugby player and administrator Robert Owen Loftus Versfeld.
The stadium has undergone various name changes and renovations. During the ‘70s and ‘80s, four spectator pavilions were added. Thus only minor improvements were required to bring the stadium up to FIFA standards for the FIFA 2010 World CupTM.
Affectionately called ‘Loftus’ by local sports fans, the state-of-the-art stadium is the home ground of the Bulls Super Rugby franchise (and Blue Bulls team that plays in domestic competitions). Fanatical supporters pack the stadium to capacity whenever their team takes to the field.
Though Loftus is primarily associated with rugby, local premier division football teams Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs use the stadium as their alternative home ground. International artists like Celine Dion, UB40 and Robbie Williams have rocked the 51 762-seat stadium.
