UJ Sport Facilities

As a vibrant and multicultural education institution in South Africa, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) shares the pace and energy of the cosmopolitan Johannesburg city. With this mind, UJ provides the best sports facilities for its high performance athletes, the staff and student population as well as the Johannesburg community.


The University offers a range of well-kept stadia and venues meeting international standards. Some of its stadia have been used by international athletes such as the Serbian team which trained at the A.W Muller Stadium during the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup in South Africa.

Its Soweto Sports Complex and the Westdene Stadium have hosted university cup competitions which have and continue to be broadcast on national television.

The UJ Sport facilities are available for hire for conferences, training and other functions required and approved by the University.  To book any of the venues, complete and send the Application Form for Use of Sports Facilities.pdf to pmotse@uj.ac.za.
