The Willowmoore Park is situated in the city centre of Benoni. The stadium was the venue for the first ever night cricket game played in the world.

One of South Africa’s newer international grounds, Willowmoore Park, a smaller-sized venue and home of the Easterns provincial team, first hosted a one-day international in February 1997 when India met Zimbabwe.

Willowmoore Park has so far hosted just six limited-overs internationals, but it has been in the mix more often in recent times.

Willowmoore Park will host just two matches during the World Cup. The first game features the West Indies against Bangladesh on February 18. The second takes place on March 3 when New Zealand tackles Canada.
