Sporting events

The Northern Cape is the proud host of many national and international sporting events, held at its iconic venues in Kimberley and throughout the province.   

During the respective sporting seasons, the Northern Cape hosts the home matches of its home teams, the Griquas (rugby) and Griqua Diamonds (cricket), while they battle for national and international glory.

A combination of scenic surroundings and high-quality dining in relaxed and friendly environs ensures these matches are ideal for either discussing business with clients and colleagues, or simply relaxing with friends and family.

Regularly hosts provincial and international T20 and one-day international events, as well as several matches (including the opening game) during the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2020.
