Home of the Cardiff Blues.
The recently renamed Cardiff Arms Park is one of the most famous grounds in Welsh rugby, right in the heart of Cardiff city centre. It is named after the old hotel which originally stood on the site in the 17th Century.
Cardiff RFC and the Welsh national team made it their home in the late 1800s, originally the Arms Park had a cricket ground to the north and a rugby union stadium to the south.
Throughout the 20th Century a mixture of stands were created, demolished and redeveloped to accommodate the ever-increasing crowds, with floodlights introduced in 1966. In the 1970s, a new national stadium was built on the site of the original Arms Park, and a new ground (the current holder of the Cardiff Arms Park name) was built just to the South. However, the new national ground soon wasn’t big enough to cope with the demand for Welsh rugby, and it was demolished and re-built as the Millennium Stadium in 1999, which now towers over the South Stand.
Today the Arms Park is the home of the Cardiff Blues rugby team.
