Millennium Stadium
On time, on budget - who needs Wembley?
The Millennium Stadium (Welsh: Stadiwm y Mileniwm) in Cardiff is the national stadium of Wales, used primarily for rugby union and football. It is currently the largest football ground in the United Kingdom with a capacity of 74,500, but will relinquish this distinction when the rebuilding of Wembley Stadium in London is complete. The stadium is owned by the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU).

Since it's opening in June 1999, the Millennium Stadium has welcomed over 1.3 Million visitors per year. With the first retractable roof in the UK, the Stadium is a multi-purpose, all round venue. With a UEFA 5-Star rating, it has quickly established itself as a world class venue and is now the home of five major sporting bodies: The Welsh Rugby Union, The Football Association, The Football League, The Football Association of Wales and the British Speedway Association.

Since hosting the spectacular Rugby World Cup in 1999, it seems that each month brings yet another memorable event; the FA Cup Final, the Carling Cup Final, the British Speedway Grand Prix, and many outstanding concerts with excellent performances from the following artists: The Manic Street Preachers, Tina Turner, Bon Jovi, Robbie Williams and The Stereophonics - the list just grows and grows.
