Actually The Crusaders Ground, St George's Park, but commonly known as St George's Park, the ground first hosted a Test match in March 1889 - the first ground to host a Test in South Africa. It was hugely improved for the 2003 World Cup, with R11-million of the total allocation of R35-million for improvements being used on it. Saint George's Park boasts excellent stands as well as grassed embankments. It is also famous for its enthusiastic band that is always in attendance at one-day internationals and Test matches. During World Cup 2003, the ground was home to one of the semi-finals, and hosted five games in total, including the high profile England versus Australia clash. It is the home ground of the eponymous cricket club and is the second oldest ground in South Africa. This was the ground where South Africa played its last test match before ICC pronounced its ban on it from international cricket. St. George's Park had to wait till December 1992 to host its first one-day international, which was played between South Africa and India. Besides cricket, St. George's Park has hosted rugby matches in the past.
