Reply To: National Stadium announcement
Went to the Millennium Stadium at Cardiff last saturday – now there is a stadium in the right location – 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. No need to be concerned about parking. A world class arena with retractable roof and a capacity of 78,000.
Definitely put the new stadium at lansdowne road – it’ll be worth it in the long run and it is important for historical reasons (oldest rugby stadium site in the world!).
Cost of Millennium stadium in a downtown site including demolition of the old Cardiff Arms Park= Â£150 million stg (â‚¬234 million euro) and we are talking about spening 1/2 billion euro on the stadium alone in a greenfield site – why does this not add up?
