11 April 2001[edit]

This article makes no reference to the stampede that occurred at Ellis Park on 11 April 2001. This was an important tragedy in the life of this stadium. See [1] and [2] for more info. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.243.107.108 (talk) 01:29, 24 December 2005‎ (UTC)

Moved disaster into separate article[edit]

See Ellis Park Stadium disaster. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rxnd (talkcontribs) 22:48, 13 April 2006‎ (UTC)

Naming contradiction[edit]

The article contains two statements: "The stadium is named after William Webb Ellis" and "Mr JD Ellis, (after whom Ellis Park was named)". Which is it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.86.47.136 (talk) 10:36, 20 May 2006‎ (UTC)

JD Ellis. Philc TECI 11:53, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Move[edit]

Can we please move this back to Ellis Park, the name everyone calls it by? Loftus Versfeld has many sponsership names.--Bezuidenhout (talk) 22:09, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Coca-Cola Park (Johannesburg)Ellis Park Stadium — Per WP:COMMONNAME; the stadium is much better known by its original name under which it hosted the 1995 Rugby World Cup than by its new sponsership name. The stadium is being called Ellis Park Stadium with regard to the 2010 FIFA World Cup by FIFA themselves, as shown here, and while the official website of the stadium uses "Coca-Cola Park", the URL remains http://www.ellispark.co.za/. Lots of stadia on Wikipedia are located at their common name, rather than their official sponsership title, such as The Oval, which is officially the Brit Insurance Oval. --84.92.117.93 (talk) 21:46, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
