Cardiff gets first kick at the Olympics

Millennium Stadium

The Olympic Games kick off – literally – in Cardiff, two days before the opening ceremony in London. The Millennium Stadium hosts 11 matches on eight dates in both the men’s and women’s football competitions, starting on Wednesday 25th July and finishing with the men’s bronze medal match on 10th August. Before then, the Olympic Flame, one of the enduring symbols of the Olympic Games, representing peace, unity and friendship, arrives in Cardiff on Friday 25th May for an evening celebration before heading on to Dinas Powys, Barry, Caerphilly and Pontypridd the next day.
