On match days the D-field, just south-west of the main stadium, transforms into a fan park, where there is fun for the whole family. Fans can relax in the beer garden and watch various local artists take to the stage while they wait for the match.

There is an array of different stalls and activities that entertain young and old alike. Our kids area has quickly become a major attraction with our giant customised Vodacom Bulls inflatable. A variety of promotional stalls, as well as a mobile ATM, can normally be found at the fan park too.



As one of the notable landmarks of Pretoria, it’s well worth a visit even if you are not a big sports fan. The stadium grounds are open to the public and the fields that surround the stadium are easily accessible. Supporters, young and old, are able to watch their heroes practice.

At the main entrance you will find two large statues: a bull, the symbol of the Blue Bulls Rugby Union, and another of an “unknown rugby player”, honouring all the heroes of Loftus Versfeld.

Stadium tours of Loftus Versfeld can be organised by booking only: Contact us on 012 420 0700 to book a tour of the stadium.
