History


The SuperSport Park was established in the 1986-87 season. The venue hosted its first ever Test match when South Africa played England in 1996. It hosted its first ODI in 1992 when South Africa played India.


It is the only sports ground in the world which gave its name to a municipality “Centurion”. Many captains have described the stadium as “one of the grounds with best players facilities in the world”.


Major Matches


The ground was one of the venues for the 2003 Cricket World Cup. India played Pakistan in one of the group stage matches at this very own venue.


The ground also hosted the Indian Premier League matches in 2009 when the league was shifted to South Africa due to the elections that were due in India.


The ground also hosted the ICC Champions Trophy 2009 matches, including the final on October 5, 2009.


Indian cricket fans have fond memories of the ground, as Sachin Tendulkar scored his 50th Test century here.


Controversies


In 1986, the ground made a controversial dew-laden debut as a provincial venue. In 2009, the match between India and Australia in the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy was abandoned due to rain which was one of the reasons for India to exit the tournament in the group stage.
