Capetonians create petition and Facebook page calling to 'Save Newlands Stadium'
A Cape Town duo is mobilising in an effort to save Newlands Stadium from potential demolition.
According to reports, the stadium will be demolished in 2021 following a deal between Western Province Rugby Football Union and Investec.
Fedele is in favour of preserving the historic stadium and simply renovating outdated infrastructure.
It's an iconic stadium... I believe it is worth saving.Ellen Fedele, Founder of Save Newlands Stadium movement
The Facebook group titled Save Newlands Stadium is open to comments and suggestions.
Newlands and Investec have neither confirmed nor denied the allegations that the stadium will be replaced with residential and retail properties built on the site.
