It is bordered by Mushandirapamwe Hotel, Machipisa council bar, bus station, Jerusalem suburb and by a BP station owned by the Tawengwas.It was built by the brothers Eric and Phanuel Gwanzura to defy colonial restrictions on access to sporting infrastructure for black Africans.[citation needed]

Historically, it has been the home ground of CAPS United, Blue line aces and Lions.[citation needed] It hosts CBZ premiership soccer matches.[1]

There media reports in February 2008 that indicated that the stadium was in a poor state, with one reporter going as far as to compare it to a harvested wheat field.[1] The Harare City Council is charged with the upkeep of the stadium.
