Millennium Stadium - Wales

Wales - Millennium Stadium

Last match I went to see:

I haven't been to the Millennium Stadium for a game itself, the only time I have been was for a tour. It was pretty much a spur of a moment thing as I had planned to go and watch Spurs vs Swansea at White Hart Lane the day after Swindon away as a birthday present for my mate, so decided to go to Swindon away as it was a Tuesday night and stay over the night back in March 2015. We noticed as well from Swindon to Cardiff by train only took an hour so thought stuff it why not go to Wales for the day, do a tour of the Millennium Stadium and also do a tour of Cardiff City's ground (which luckily we could do and for free as well so can't complain) as both grounds are relatively close to one another (as you can see in the picture below, also not my picture by the way.) I really did enjoy visiting Cardiff, was a really nice city. I may well have to do a re-visit to Wales at some point in the future as we wasn't there for very long do may well have to make a weekend of it or something. Also, The Millennium Stadium was the home of the FA Cup Final, League Cup Final, Football League Trophy Final, The Play Offs and The Community Shield from 2001 to 2007, the last competitive game out of those which was the Football League Trophy which saw Doncaster Rovers beat Bristol Rovers 3-2 after extra time. Also whilst typing as well, The Millennium Stadium has been chosen to host the 2017 Champions League Final.

Both Cardiff City's Cardiff City Stadium and The Millennium Stadium in the distance from the air.

Myself with the Gareth Bale shirt on the tour, had to be done!
