Soshanguve Giant Stadium, commonly referred to as Giant Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Soshanguve, a suburb of Pretoria, South Africa. It is set to be utilized as a training field for teams participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup after being rebuilt in 2009.[1] Besides serving as a training venue for the World Cup, it will also be used as a public viewing area for residents to watch matches.[2]

Currently the stadium is the home for Soshanguve Sunshine, playing in the North West Province of Vodacom League. However, the stadium is situated a few kilometers within the border of the Gauteng province.
