Once in, the stadium the vibe is always electric, sound is good and seating well organised and easy to find. However, if you have not bought pre-paid parking on a big match day (tri-nations, SA game) - you are in for the most irritating drive of your life to find parking! Car guards will try and make an easy buck... More

Emirates Park AKA Ellis Park is the home stadium for the Lions Super Rugby franchise. They have made huge strides in recent years to attract more spectators having beefed up the facilities and the security. Inside the stadium it is very safe. Outside you need to have your wits about you. Recommend buying a parking ticket if going to the... More

a nice stadium once you are inside but is close to Hillbrow, a less than salubrious part of Joburg Better organise a bus to go to and fro and go with your mates

The stadium is not to bad but the car park is a bit of a problem. I'm not sure about the safety of the vehicle.

I was lucky enough to have visited to this stadium at the World Cup ... seeing Spain beat Paraguayan the 1/4 finals. It's an olde skool stadium but with a good atmosphere when it is full. Worthwhile checking a football match there ... not sure if Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs still play there occasionally. But that's a match that... More

Getting in and out of the stadium is relatively painless and the seating areas are well signposted and easy to find. Toilets can get a bit messy when the stadium is full and the queues for... More
