Plan ahead for Judgement Day extravaganza

Regional rugby supporters heading to Judgement Day IV at Principality Stadium are being urged to plan ahead of the event on Saturday 30 April, 2016.

With more than 65,000 tickets already snapped up for the back-to-back derbies, supporters from across Wales and beyond will be flocking to the city-centre for the ‘East v West’ event.

For those with tickets to watch the matches live at the home of Welsh sport, the WRU is reminding fans to allow plenty of time to get into the venue.  

Stadium visitors are urged to arrive no later than 30 minutes before the matches; Cardiff Blues v Ospreys at 2.30pm and Newport Gwent Dragons v Scarlets at 5pm.

Due to enhanced security measures at the iconic venue, supporters are also advised to leave large bags at home where possible or expect to be searched.

The WRU joins forces with Cardiff Council and city travel operators to ensure fans get the relevant information ahead of major events.

With an almost-capacity crowd in the stadium and thousands more in the city-centre, transport information is key. Details and further information are available here

Principality Stadium Manager Mark Williams said:

“The buzz around Judgement Day IV is huge, with more than 65,000 tickets sold to Welsh rugby fans, and so we know that Cardiff is going to very busy on matchday. As with any event at Principality Stadium, our message to the supporters is to plan in advance.

“It is of course fantastic news for the WRU, the four regions, all the players and supporters that the attendance and atmosphere in the stadium will be up there with that of an international match on Saturday. With this comes a serious message to fans travelling to the match that Cardiff and the transport infrastructure will be busy and planning ahead is necessary to ensure they don’t miss out on what will be a great day of rugby at Principality Stadium to celebrate Judgement Day IV.”
