The Sharks welcome the judgment delivered yesterday in the Brett Williams murder case, which tragically occurred on the outer-fields at Growthpoint KINGS PARK in 2013. (The accused, Blayne Shepard, was found guilty of culpable homicide on Monday).

We thrive on creating a family environment at the stadium where all ages can enjoy a wonderful matchday experience in a safe and secure environment. We have a zero tolerance policy with regard to untoward behaviour at the stadium and we don’t condone this in the strictest terms.

In the last year, we have focussed extensively from moving away from a club culture within the stadium to a more family orientated focus with the implementation of an outer-field market, a supervised kids dugout area, the Mangwanani Spa offering on matchday as well as many other exciting initiatives, which is aimed at providing world-class entertainment for our patrons.

The safety of our patrons is a priority and as a result of the tragedy that occurred, stricter measures were implemented to prevent such situations from occurring at our venue. These include:

    • Increased security presence at all home matches;
  • The implementation of a security hotline (031 3088472), which is extensively advertised on matchday, to report any untoward behaviour or incidents, which will be dealt with immediately by a trained reaction team;
  • The stadium officially shuts down two hours after the main match;
  • The implementation of stricter controls and measures with regard to the sale of alcohol at the stadium.

Our vision is powered by the ethos of family and we dedicated to ensuring that we continually look for ways to increase our offering which is in line with our slogan “It’s More than a Game”.
