For the people, by the people!

For the people, by the people!

One thing that sets Durban aside from the rest is that we have this beautifully redeveloped beachfront and promenade to enjoy everyday. And boy, do we make use of it. There isn’t a day that there aren’t hundreds of people partaking in some kind of activity down at the beachfront, whether it be running, cycling, yoga or just walking the dogs. The really cool thing is that the promenade connects directly to the People’s Park precinct, which holds not only a magnificent track & field a...

Some of our favourite 2010 World Cup photos!

Ah….. The 2010 FIFA World Cup. You can’t really blame us for getting nostalgic now that the next World Cup is about to take place in Brazil. It almost seems unreal to think that we hosted 7 World Cup matches that year, with the likes of Paris Hilton, Leonardo Di Caprio and John Travolta attending our stadium. Thousands of people all over the world flooded into Moses Mabhida and the spirit felt at the games and in Durban itself was unlike anything you have ever experienced. All we have ...

Home is where the (I) heart (market) is!

On the first Saturday of every month, a little revolution happens on the Imbizo Lawns at Moses Mabhida Stadium. Not the kind of revolution you read about in your history books at school, but more of a local kind of revolution. One that brings the community together in a way that supports the city’s economy and promotes our independent artisans. Durbanites flock to the I heart Market to satisfy their appetites, indulge in retail therapy, catch up with mates, listen to amazing music and gener...

Chaat is the Indian version of fast ...

One small step for man, one giant leap for SA Wildlife.  

One small step for man, one giant leap for SA Wildlife.   

Is it a spaceman? Is it a teletubby? If you were somewhere around the stadium last week Wednesday, you might have doubted your sanity a little as you watched an interesting figure walking over the #MMStadium arch! On Wednesday, 21 May, saturation deep sea diver and SA wildlife advocate Steve Entwistle took his love for rhinos, to the next level. Literally. Kitted out in a diving suit from the early 1900’s weighing an approximate 70 kgs, he succeeded in conquering the infamous #MMStadi...
