Formerly the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is a stadium for the new millennium. The Stadium was built in 1999 to give this amazing city the stadium it deserves and to host the best in music, sports and entertainment from around the world.

Getting to Principality Stadium

The Principality Stadium brought Cardiff into the twenty-first century with a bang. This historic Welsh city already has incredible castles and the countryside to offer, and now the Stadium puts Cardiff amongst the biggest and best in the world for entertainment venues.

Cardiff is served by twenty different train stations, so getting around by rail is very popular. CrossCountry serves the city with routes via Cardiff Central, which is right next to the Principality Stadium. Getting to your event and home again couldn’t be easier.

About the Principality Stadium

Officially renamed as the Principality Stadium in 2016, the building is still often known by its original name the Millennium Stadium. The stadium sits in the heart of Cardiff on the bank of the River Taff and is only a stone’s throw away from Cardiff Castle. The stadium opened in 1999 after a £140 million construction project as a multi-purpose sports and entertainment venue. As one of Britain’s most modern stadiums, Principality Stadium boasts a retractable roof, making it the second largest stadium in the world to feature this technology.

In its debut event, Wales beat South Africa in a rugby union test match. Today, the Principality Stadium is home to the Welsh national rugby union team; and its first major tournament was the 1999 Rugby World Cup.

As well as rugby, the stadium has hosted football games, including the FA Cup and League Cup, and world-class musical acts such as Bon Jovi, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, R.E.M., and Madonna.

Things To Do at Principality Stadium

This modern stadium hosts everything from major sporting events to top musical artists. There’s a packed event calendar throughout the year, so visit the Principality Stadium website and book your tickets.

The stadium is a destination in its own right, but its location in the centre of Cardiff means it is minutes away from all the other entertainment this city has to offer. Why not make the most of the city while you are in town?

Stadium Plaza is next door to the principality Stadium, and the historic Cardiff Castle which dates back to the 3rd century, is only two streets away. Next to the castle is Bute Park on the banks of the River Taff. Also nearby is Cardiff Market, and the shops at Morgan Quarter. And of course, when you visit Principality Stadium you will only be minutes away from the beautiful Welsh countryside.
