The Milennium Stadium
Venue of the 1999 Rugby World Cup Final, this new stadium has a seating capacity of 72,500 and was built to replace Cardiff Arms Park. It is arguably the best Stadium in the UK now, although future developments in London could put pay to that status.
This is a picture of the Millenium Stadium... sitting next to the River Taff... if you're in the centre of the city you won't be able to miss its white 'spires', which now dominate the Cardiff skyline
Built on the site of the old Cardiff Arms Park. Finished construction by the end of 1999, in time for the Millenium celebrations (I was there!). Has a roof which can be open/closed as the weather dictates.
The National Stadium at the Arms Park was redeveloped for the Rugby World Cup in 1999. The new Millennium Stadium hosted the Opening Ceremony, the Third place Play-off and the Final as well as 3 additional group matches and a Quarter Final. It has a capacity of 72,500 and the roof of the new structure is retractable and will make the venue much less prone to problems caused by bad weather. The National Stadium has in the past played host to much more that just rugby, with many a packed house for concerts performend by such stars a Micheal Jackson, REM and U2, as well as other sporting events including Boxing and Soccer. To mark the Millennium over 60,000 people attended a concert by the Manic Street Preachers and the following day 65,000 attended the largest ever Songs of Praise.
The Millennium Stadium has 72,500 seats and a steel sliding roof was completed for the 1999 Rugby World Cup.
The Welsh national stadium is a magnificent venue for major sports events. Currently hosting the FA Cup and Worthington Cup Final..
If you like rugby , you can go arms park studium. The studium was renewed in 1999. The 4th Rugby World Cup was held in this studium. There is a tour that you can attend. It is very interesting.
