Project Description

Project Description

The Millennium Stadium is the national stadium of Wales, located in Cardiff. It is the home of the Wales national rugby union team and has also staged games of the Wales national football team.

Initially built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup, it has gone on to host many other large-scale events, such as the Tsunami Relief concert, the Super Special Stage of Wales Rally Great Britain, the Speedway Grand Prix of Great Britain and various music concerts. It also hosted six FA Cup finals and several other high profile football fixtures whilst Wembley Stadium was being redeveloped.

The all-seater stadium has the capacity for 74,500 supporters and features a retractable roof, only the second stadium of its type in Europe, and the largest football stadium in the world with this feature, by capacity. The current record attendance is 74,576, recorded at Wales’ 30–15 victory over Scotland in the 2008 Six Nations Championship on 9 February 2008
