    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.

    2005 The last FA Cup Final?

    by Kettleman Updated May 31, 2005

    The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff has become the temporary home for major English football finals, whilst Wembley Stadium is being rebuilt, in addition to its function as the National Stadium for Wales.

    It has been quite good for us that are Arsenal supporters as we have been to 4 Cup Finals since 2001, winning 3 and losing one. The 4th visit was on May 21st 2005, and despite playing the worst game ever, overcame Manchester United on penalties.

    We have also been there several times in the Community Shield in August of each year and also recently (April 2005) in the FA Cup Semi-Final. We are there again on August 7th 2005 to play Chelsea.

    One of the stewards joked that we had been there so often we didn't need her help finding our seats.
