Wales - Millennium Stadium

Millennium Stadium Guide

Stadium Info

The stadium became notorious for an apparent "away team hoodoo". The first twelve major cup finals were all won by the teams occupying the home dressing room with their fans in the North Stand. Stoke City beat Brentford 2-0 in 2002 to end the "hoodoo", but only after an expert in the fine art of feng shui, Paul Darby had carried out a blessing. This may have been little more than a publicity stunt but seemed to do the trick. In the photos above, there's one of a painting in the away team dressing room, put there to help remove the 'bad aura'.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are advised that there are no bad seats within the stadium. Obviosuly, the closer to the middle you are, the better overall view you'll have of the action and the stadium itself.

Where To Drink

The location of the Millennium Stadium, in the centre of Cardiff, means that there are plenty of pubs and bars from which to choose. There are reportedly 70+ outlets within a mile radius of the ground. At the South end of the stadium, St. Mary's Street offers a range of good pubs.

Those which have received particularly good reviews are the Prince of Wales (a former theatre), the Albert, adjacent to the Brains brewery, and the Cottage. These are all very busy on match days and early arrival is advised.

Parking

Parking is limited in the streets around the ground and you'll be hard pushed to find a space within 10 minutes walk. On a busy match day you can park as far as 20 minutes away. However, there are plenty of 'football' car parks scattered around generally charging between 5 and 8 for the duration. The earlier you arrive, the better the parking space.
