Cape Town Stadium has a new name, DHL Stadium.

Although no official announcement has been made until now, the new name was in use during the British and Irish Lions tour.

The rebranding of DHL Stadium will commence soon.

Cape Town’s Stormers rugby team will take residence in DHL Stadium, after announcing in 2020 the sale of DHL Newlands to Investec.

DHL Newlands will be demolished for residential and retail developments.

Mike Wills interviewed DHL Stadium Commercial Manager Gina Woodburn (scroll up to listen).

It’s a four-year deal… It’s from today called the DHL Stadium… The asset has enormous value… It really is the right strategy…

Gina Woodburn, Commercial Manager - DHL Stadium

We’re waiting [for spectators to return] … Next year we have the World Rugby Sevens in September and the HSBC Sevens in December… The second half of next year has a full calendar…

Gina Woodburn, Commercial Manager - DHL Stadium

A stadium… is an asset that lasts 100 years…
