Drawing on interviews, government documents, newspapers video footage and a visit to Ellis Park stadium in August 2003, this study examines the causes, significances and legacy of the disaster. This examination of the tragedy discloses that situations outside the control of the supporters were predominantly to blame for converting Ellis Park into a landscape of death and devastation. These included vital faults, contempt for spectator safety, ineffectiveness and negligence of duty on the part of security staffs. Under South African football Association (SAFA) procedures for high risk contests, accountability for spectator safety is the home side’s responsibility; Kaizer Chiefs, Premier Soccer League (PSL) and a lesser extent, Ellis Park stadium management.
