History of Principality Stadium

Designed by Populous, Principality Stadium opened in June 1999 in effort to create the most atmospheric rugby stadium in the centre of Cardiff for the Rugby World Cup. The venue provided the Welsh Rugby Union with a new home, replacing The National Stadium, Cardiff Arms Park.

In 2013, the Wales rugby team hosted the final match of the Six Nations Championship against England. Wales dominated, proving too good for England with a score of 30-3. Commentators noted that the England rugby union was starstruck by the intense atmosphere beneath the stadium’s closed roof. When the roof opened in 2015, Principality Stadium was renowned for being the loudest venue in the tournament.

Principality Stadium hosts various other events, including concerts featuring artists such as The Rolling Stone, The Police, Neil Young and Madonna. The stadium has also staged championship boxing, show jumping, and the first-ever World Rally Championship indoor stage. While Wembley Stadium was being renovated, the venue hosted six FA Cup Finals and the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final with Real Madrid and Juventus.
