Originally named Centurion Park, SuperSport Park, the home ofNortherns (Northern Transvaal), is in easy access of Johannesburg, Midrand and Pretoria. It was the only sports ground in the world which gave its name to a municipality: Centurion.  It is one of only a few privately owned stadia in South Africa, having been bought back from the Centurion City Council in more recent years.

One of the newer stadiums and Test venues in South Africa it has been described by various international captains as "One of the grounds with the best players' facilities in the world". The stadium's appeal is the grass embankments which make up a large part of the seating area, ideal for good family cricket watching. Beach Cabana type hospitality chalets have been erected high on the grass banks for added corporate viewing pleasure. A pavilion at the north end of the ground completes the 22,000 spectator capacity.

Known for being one of the quicker pitches in South Africa, it also gives plenty of opportunity to batsmen, with the ball generally coming onto the bat. It has never been seen as a spinners paradise. The outfield is level, lush and fast with a drainage system on par with any in the world.

It is twenty-one years since the picturesque Centurion Park made its debut as a provincial venue during the 1986/1987 season. The stadium staged its first test match between South Africa and Mike Atherton’s England team during the 1995/1996 season.

Twenty-one years on from that historic match and the stadium's event list has gone from strength to strength. It has played host to major global sporting occassions such as the ICC World Cup in 2003 which included the historical match between India and Pakistan and has shown its versatility as a venue by hosting concerts by Pavarotti amongst others.

SuperSport Park has a minimum seated capacity of 17 500, including 69 hospitality suites, 32 embankment suites and 40 wheelchair spaces.

The stadium recently entered into a partnership with Compass All-Leisure; significant upgrades to the catering facilities, include our capacity to pour 9 000 beers per hour, the stadium lights, arguably among the best in the country and the sightscreens have enhanced SuperSport Park for both the players and spectators. Further upgrades included the secondary scoreboard and access system. 

This ground was a venue for 2003 Cricket World Cup and Indian Premier League 2009 which took place in South Africa. It was also selected as a venue for ICC Champions Trophy 2009 and hosted the final on 5 October 2009, one of the greatest achievements for this stadium. 

This was also the ground where Sachin Tendulkar scored his 50th Test Match century. 

It hosted an Australian rules practice match in 2008 between Carlton and Fremantle.
