The Stadium was built as a replacement for The Arms Park in 1999. Since its inception, numerous events have taken place that cemented this stadium in the hearts and minds of the Welsh. The massively popular Rugby World Cup inaugurated these beautifully maintained grounds, and it was here where Wales beat South Africa for the first time in 12 matches during the 1999 Rugby Union matches. History was made in 2007, when one of the biggest nights in boxing attracted 50,000 people to the arena to witness the night when Joe Calzaghe was emerged the Best Boxer in the World in the middleweight category. The prestigious FA Cup Finals enthralled the fans to bits within these walls from 2001-2006. Besides a huge array of legendary sporting nights, the arena has hosted concerts features world famous artists such as The Rolling Stones and Madonna. The Stadium’s even appeared in certain episodes of Doctor Who!

We had a wonderful tour of this great rugby stadium this afternoon. Our tour guide Steve was brilliant - very funny yet very informative! We saw both dressing rooms, as well as walking to the pitch side and the royal box. The tour took an hour and a half and the time went by very quickly. For £12.50 it's hard to beat and much better than any football stadium. It's in a very good location too - right beside the city centre. Great stuff! Highly recommended!
Watched south africa vs wales rugby match, fantastic big stadium. Clean toilets before used by many which is understandable. To be honest they do have many toilets including disable people's which is good.
Incredible stadium! When the roof is closed and the crowd are in full voice there are few places that can match here for atmosphere. And with it being in the centre of Cardiff the pre and post match fun is always first class.
Brilliant atmosphere on match days, I worked here when it was the old arms park. Changed alot. People can pay for tours also. Don't think it will be the same if they stop selling beer on match days as high majority of people including in boxes won't pay extra .
It's a great stadium but feel it lacks a but of atmosphere inside. It might be just the sheer size that the noise doesn't travel far. Love the roof and tv screens under the mid level. The bars and food outside are well stocked and there are lots of toilets.
