New George V Stadium is a football stadium in Curepipe, Mauritius. The stadium holds 6,200 people.[2]

History[edit]

The construction of the George V Stadium started in 1954 and the stadium was ready in 1955.[1] In 2003, the old stadium was demolished and the new stadium was built the same year. It was used in the Indian Ocean Island Games in 2003 and has been the national team home ground ever since. However, some matches are also played at the Anjalay Stadium.
