Accommodation near Royal Bafokeng Stadium

The Royal Bafokeng Stadium, officially named the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace, is located in Phokeng in the North West province, just outside Rustenburg. Phokeng is in the heart of the region inhabited by the Royal Bafokeng nation, which comprises 29 villages. The town is located approximately an hour and a half from Johannesburg.

The Royal Bafokeng Palace is the pride of the Bafokeng nation and was the dream of Kgosi Lebone II, the former king of the Royal Bafokeng nation. A decade ago, King Kgosi Lebona told his people that they would witness the phenomenon of soccer right in their back yards, and thus the sports palace was built.

The stadium is used to host rugby games, soccer matches and is also used as an athletics track. It is used to host the ABSA Currie Cup by the Leopards rugby team and is home to the Premier Soccer League club, The Platinum Stars.

The capacity of the stadium was increased from its original 38 000 to 42 000, and now boasts 24 suits, for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. This massive upgrade was completed in March, in time for the stadium to host 4 matches of the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup. The stadium was honoured with hosting 5 of the first round matches of the 2010 Fifa World Cup and 1 of the second round matches.

This royal sports palace will be among the first to provide a designated 'family section'. This is so that families with young children can enjoy professional sports safely and comfortably. The stadium also sports a swimming pool section with seating for 250 people, tennis facilities, netball facilities and ample parking with space for 550 cars, 95 taxis and 65 buses.
