Boet Erasmus Stadium (GRB-202)


Product Description



EPRU Stadium, also known by its original name of Boet Erasmus Stadium, is a stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The stadium has a capacity of 33,852 people. The original name Boet Erasmus Stadium was named after Boet Erasmus, a former mayor of Port Elizabeth.

It was used mostly for rugby union matches, as well as football. "EPRU" stands for Eastern Province Rugby Union, the company behind the stadium's historic primary tenants, the Mighty Elephants team in the Currie Cup.

The stadium was the intended home of the Southern Spears, a team that was scheduled to play in the 2006 Currie Cup in preparation for its admission to the Super Rugby starting in 2007. However, the Spears were later denied entry into both competitions.

The stadium was officially closed in July 2010. The Eastern Province Rugby Union have moved all games to the new world class Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth. The last match to be played at the stadium was a friendly against the Blue Bulls on 3 July 2010.

While the stadium no longer hosts professional rugby, it has hosted age-group, amateur and club rugby since being officially closed.
