Royal Bafokeng Sports

High Altitude Sports Stadium and Camp

The Royal Bafokeng community, situated in South Africa’s North West Province, gained international acclaim for the successful hosting of six of the 2010 FIFA World Cup games. But what the world saw during this tournament was just the tip of a sporting initiative iceberg that reaches out across the entire region.

The vision and practice of sporting development in RBN goes much deeper than a high-profile stadium. Across the whole region, Royal Bafokeng Sports drives a number of ground breaking sporting development initiatives that span athletics, soccer, netball, rugby and martial arts. This department is entirely dedicated to sports development, focusing on societal progress through the positive influence of sports from school children right through to professional level.

The Samba football project, a junior football initiative, launched in 2008, is run in all 29 villages, and has generated 32 junior football clubs to date.

Many other sporting initiatives and programmes also take place in schools and villages across the region, and all initiatives are able to utilise the world-class facilities that are available to them through the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace and the Bafokeng Sports Campus.

All sporting codes are, at the highest level, administered by hand selected professionals, including Brazilian football coaches, a former national netball player, a fifth-dan karate champion, former North-West rugby greats and Owen Da Gama, the celebrated Dinaledi coach.

From this administration, certain individuals have been specifically tasked with development – they are in charge of 500 local coaches, who share their skills and passion with the Bafokeng youth on a daily basis.

The Royal Bafokeng community has the following sporting facilities and initiatives:
