- Sahara Park Newlands Stadium, home to the Nashua Cape Cobras, is situated in the heart of Newlands, a charming, gardened Cape Town suburb. The land was originally part of a farm, Mariendal, a wedding gift to Lydia Corrina. Part of the farm, which adjoins Newlands train station on both sides of the railway line, became available for rent. When the Western Province Cricket Club heard about it in January 1888, the Newlands Cricket Stadium was officially opened. The field is centrally situated and easily accessible by public and private transport. Many Capetonians are fanatical about cricket, and national and international games are played here. Watch the press for match details.
