Millennium Stadium to be renamed Principality Stadium
Principality Building Society and the Welsh Rugby Union have entered a new ten year partnership which will help encourage, develop and grow Wales’ national game at all levels, to be marked by the renaming of the national stadium of Wales in January 2016.
The renaming opens a new chapter in the history of the Cardiff venue which has been called the Millennium Stadium since it opened on 26th June 1999.
As well as being the home of Welsh rugby, the multi-purpose venue plays a central role in Welsh life, supporting local community events and attracting major music concerts and high profile business events to the area.
A major operation will now commence to rebrand the venue as Principality Stadium in time for the RBS 6 Nations Tournament 2016.
It will shortly host eight Rugby World Cup international matches including two quarter finals, under the existing name Millennium Stadium, before officially being unveiled under its new title in January next year.
