Travel Advice: RBS 6 Nations
Written by GTFM Newsdesk on 5th February 2016
Welsh rugby supporters with tickets to see RBS 6 Nations live at Principality Stadium are being urged to start planning their day now so as not to miss out on the action when Wales face Scotland on Saturday 13 February.
With over 74,000 supporters descending on the stadium on matchday, supporters are reminded that planning and preparation is necessary to avoid missing kick-off.
Principality Stadium is advising those with tickets to the match to arrive early to allow time for potential travel delays and enhanced security checks and to leave large bags at home, where possible, to avoid further hold-up.
The request follows a meeting with South Wales Police, the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit, the Sports Ground Safety Authority and Cardiff City Council about security in the capital in light of recent world events.
“Even with the necessary systems in place across the city region, supporters leaving it too late to travel to the venue, particularly for a Friday night fixture, could experience delays and subsequent disappointment if they miss the match kick-off. My advice to fans is to start your planning now for RBS 6 Nations matches in Cardiff allowing extra time – not to miss out!”
Principality Stadium General Manager Mark Williams
