Dal Josaphat Stadium World-class Sporting Facility on Our Doorstep

Drakenstein boasts several first-rate sporting facilities – and the multi-purpose Dal Josaphat Stadium in Paarl is one that deserves special mention. Featuring various modern amenities thanks to major renovations and ongoing maintenance over the years, the Dal Josaphat Stadium is home to various local rugby, soccer, cricket, netball, and athletic clubs. This stadium has been playing host to a range of prestigious international, national, and

provincial athletics events, such as the Athletics South Africa (ASA) Youth Championships and the PUMA School of Speed. Dal Josaphat is also a Grade 1 International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) facility. It is one of only three in the country, which means the stadium can host world-class athletic events and Olympic qualifiers. This opens opportunities for the Drakenstein economy, as well as for local athletes and schools.
