The Peter Mokaba Stadium is a football stadium in the City of Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg), South Africa, that was used for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The stadium is one of five new stadiums that were built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Initial plans to upgrade the existing Pietersburg Stadium were abandoned in favour of the R1,245,000,000 (ZAR) new Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The stadium was used intensely for training and matches, therefore, the natural grass has been reinforced with artificial fibers, which anchors the field into a stable and level grass surface: Desso GrassMaster.
The first event at the stadium was the Peter Mokaba Cup, held on 23 January 2010. It was a 4 team, friendly tournement, which served as the stadium's opening event. In the first semi-final, Supersport United beat Danish side Brøndby 2–1. In the second semi-final, Kaizer Chiefs advanced after beating Wits 4–3 on penalties, after a goalless draw. Kaizer Chiefs defeated Supersport United 4–2 in the final.
The first international game played at the stadium was the international friendly between South Africa and Guatemala on 31 May 2010, which South Africa won 5–0.
The stadium hosted its first competitive football match on 20 November 2010. Kaizer Chiefs opted to host their 2010–11 Telkom Knockout semi-final against Santos at the stadium. The match ended 1–0 to Kaizer Chiefs.
