Ellis Park is a world class sporting venue. Home to the final of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, this is where South Africa beat New Zealand during extra time in what was probably one of the most thrilling rugby matches ever.
Ellis Park is a major venue in South Africa. It has been proposed as a semi-final venue for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but will have to undergo some renovations to fullfill all the FIFA requirements. New upper tiers will have to be constructed behind each goal, adding an extra 10,000 seats and bringing the seating capacity to 70,000. Ellis Park will then meet every requirement to be accepted as a venue for one of the semi-final matches.
Today Ellis Park is home to the Lions, the Cats, Kaizer Chiefs Football Club and is also the premier concert venue in South Africa.
Manchester United and Arsenal are two major clubs to have graced the turf, and the stadium has hosted South Africa's national team on many celebrated occasions.
