Cape Town Stadium (Stormers’ new home ground) gets a familiar sounding new name
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).
