As well as watching rugby, there will also be opportunities to try out rugby activities such as a Kicking Cage, 3d Scrum, Batak Response Test and Speed.

Cardiff has truly embraced the spirit of Rugby and there is a buzz in the air for what is set to be another fantastic world-class event, hosted by the Welsh Capital.

In addition to Cardiff’s achievement in being the only non-English host city for the games, Cardiff’s Official Rugby World Cup Fanzone really is going to be the best place to watch the game outside of the Millennium Stadium.
