Home to the Northern Titans, SuperSport Park is a modern stadium between Johannesburg and Pretoria with a futuristic outlook that enables the players to enjoy the most lavish and up to date facilities on the international circuit. The ground itself is a very attractive, if somewhat samey mix of grass banks and a main pavilion which in total house 21,000 spectators. The wicket is fast and true, perfect for test cricket, but the downside being the obvious lack of assistance for spin bowlers.

Corporate Hospitality involves being shacked up in some attractive beach style chalets, that are perched above the grass banks.

Watching cricket at SuperSport park, weather permitting is usually a very rewarding experience, with braais (South African style Barbecues) constantly on the go when the sun is out, and games of cricket being played on the banks. The smell from the braais can be somewhat overwhelming at times, and along with the rows of scantily clad local women, mean that there is always something to divert the attention from the cricket.
