Our iconic venue

The 2023 Wheelchair Rugby European Championship will bring wheelchair rugby to one of the most impressive rugby stadiums in the world, the iconic Principality Stadium in Cardiff. The Welsh home of rugby will be our home for five days of enthralling competition as we raise the bar for wheelchair rugby. Since opening in June 1999, the stadium has welcomed, on average, over 1.3 million visitors every year. Boasting the first fully retractable roof in the UK, the stadium has hosted matches from two Rugby World Cups – including the 1999 final – and hosts Six Nations matches annually. It’s also been home to the FA Cup final and regularly welcomes major concerts and motorsport events.
Our host city
When you’re not glued to the wheelchair rugby action there are plenty of exciting things to do and see in our host city of Cardiff so making a weekend of your visit to the Welsh capital comes highly recommended. Immerse yourself in the city’s many cultural options or take time to unwind in one of the parks or by the famous Bay. The city is bustling with attractions for all ages and budgets.
