Cardiff City Stadium

British football, or soccer as it is also known, is a sport enjoyed by millions of people all around the world. Cardiff City Stadium, located on Leckwith Road, Cardiff, is home to Cardiff City football club, having replaced Ninian Park in 2009. Boasting a capacity of 28,018, it is the second-largest sports stadium in Wales and, as well as sporting events, it has been used as a venue for concerts by the Stereophonics and Bon Jovi.

The development put in place around Cardiff City Stadium includes an athletics stadium, the Cardiff International Sports Stadium, a retail park and a 70-room hotel with a bar and a restaurant. During the football season the chance to sample the unique atmosphere of a British football match is simply too good to pass up, and the packages on offer at the stadium mean that you can make a full and fun-packed day out of the trip.

The Sony Suite offers a package that includes a pre-match buffet, an ice bucket of beer and wine, a hostess, access to a pay bar, a complimentary match-day programme and the chance to sample state-of-the-art Sony products.

The Captain’s Lounge, on the other hand, takes the added value up to another level. While watching the match you get to enjoy a three-course meal, a visit from two legendary ex-players, entrance through the VIP lounge and the view from a padded seat behind the home team dugout. The experience on offer won a bronze award for Best Match Day Hospitality at the 2014 Stadium Experience and Hospitality Awards.
