The Green Point Urban park will include two athletics tracks. At the moment there is no need for a major athletics venue.Athlone stadium is turning into a nice-looking little stadium, boys! This city needs better sporting facilities.
My only concern is that we are still without a proper athletics arena, now that Green Point has been demolished. Bellville's athletics stadium has only one pavilion on the side, and grass embankments all round. Even Port Elizabeth has a better athletics arena...
I know there are many good tracks... Vygiekraal, Coetzenburg, Bellville, Parow, UWC, CPUT (Bellville) are all synthetic surface tracks. But nothing like old Greenpoint, which had seating all the way round.The Green Point Urban park will include two athletics tracks. At the moment there is no need for a major athletics venue.
There is VygiesKraal, Stellenbosch is quite good.
If CT ever goes the route of the olympics, a temporary stadium scaled down to a 15,000 seat athletics venue will have to do.
The city also needs sports facilities to be maintained. And the area arounds facilities to be improved in all regards
Well i think it just had a very basic main grand stand.Before the expansion, the stadium had a capacity of 30,000. What was Athlone stadium like when it was built in 1972?
