Stadium or Home

SuperSport Park is a cricket ground in Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa.

It was renamed from Centurion Park after television company SuperSport bought shares in the stadium. The capacity of the ground is 22,000. It is located across the road from the West Avenue squatter camp, making other cricket grounds more suitable alternatives for international fixtures.

The Titans cricket team, formerly known as Northern Transvaal, have played most of their home games here since 2004.

Name
The town of Verwoerdburg was renamed Centurion at the end of apartheid, with the politically neutral new name of the town coming from that of the cricket ground.

Notable fixtures
This ground was a venue for 2003 Cricket World Cup and the Indian Premier League 2009 which took place in South Africa. It was also selected as a venue for ICC Champions Trophy 2009 and hosted the final on 5 October 2009, one of the greatest achievements for this stadium. Sachin Tendulkar also scored his 50th Test Match century on this ground.

It hosted an Australian rules football practice match in 2008 between Carlton and Fremantle.

SuperSport Park also hosted a domestic and continental Sixes tournament, where home side, the Titans, came out on top in the domestic competition, and South Africa winning the continental competition against Kenya in the final.
