HM Pitje Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Mamelodi, a suburb of the City of Tshwane, South Africa. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is set to be utilized as a training field for teams participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup after being renovated in 2009 and brought up to FIFA standards.[2]

In the past, it was the part-time home stadium of the Mamelodi Sundowns, who now play at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

The stadium was named after Hezekiel Mothibe Pitje, the first mayor of Mamelodi.[3]
