Two Cape Town residents have started a petition against this possible demolition of the iconic stadium.

Plumstead residents Leigh Bartlett and Ellen Fedele have created a Facebook page and a petition on change.org in an effort to put a stop to the stadium's closure.

Fedele is in favour of preserving the historic stadium and simply renovating outdated infrastructure.

It's an iconic stadium... I believe it is worth saving.

Ellen Fedele, Founder of Save Newlands Stadium movement

The Facebook group titled Save Newlands Stadium is open to comments and suggestions.

Newlands and Investec have neither confirmed nor denied the allegations that the stadium will be replaced with residential and retail properties built on the site.
