The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth was built in for the 2010 Fifa World Cup that was staged in South Africa.

In 2009, the British & Irish Lions took on the Southern Kings at the stadium during their tour of South Africa.

The ground, that replaced the Boet Erasmus Stadium as the major arena in the Eastern Cape, will serve as the long-term home for the Southern Kings following their introduction to the Super Rugby competiion.

It hosted its first Test match in 2011 when the Springboks played host to the All Blacks during the Tri-Nations and it is also home of the South African leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.
