Point of Interest

National Stadium

Botswana / Africa

The Botswana National Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Gaborone, currently used mostly for football matches. It holds 25,000 people. The pitch is surrounded by an athletics track. The stadium is coupled with a rugby venue, which has fallen into disuse and a tennis facility.

The stadium was made up of a total of ten stands, three of which are covered. There are three large stands on each end of the stadium, making up the north and south ends. The west side of the stadium is made up of three covered stands, while the east end is made up of one giant uncovered stand. Following the 2016 renovations, the three north stands were joined together. The same was done for the three south stands, increasing the stadium capacity by 3,000 seats from 22,000 to 25,000. From 22-31 May 2014, the stadium hosted the 2nd African Youth Games, Gaborone 2014 opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the track and field events. A giant screen was erected on the middle north stand in August 2014. The stadium is also home to the Botswana national football team, the Zebras.
