One of South Africa's newer international grounds, Willowmoore Park is a smaller-sized venue and home of the Easterns provincial team. It first hosted a one-day international in February 1997 when India met Zimbabwe. Sachin Tendulkar celebrated the new venue's debut with a century as the Indians won by six wickets, with over 10 overs to spare. Willowmoore Park remains a one-day international venue; it has not yet hosted a Test. However, it has become a more and more popular choice as an ODI ground. During the Cricket World Cup in 2003 it hosted two matches. It is a multi-use stadium but is currently used mostly for cricket matches. The stadium opened in 1924 and holds the capacity to accommodate 20,000 people.
