Horns banned at Millennium Stadium

With the World Cup just one month away, the Welsh Rugby Union are banning of the use of all horns at the Millennium Stadium. Fans are instead encouraged to support their teams through "singing and shouting".

While air horns are already banned from the stadium, the new rule now extends to all horns. Stewards will be encouraged to stop fans entering the venue with horns and even evict persistent offenders.

Our supporters are encouraged to generate noise through singing and shouting for their team but the intrusive use of these horns is extremely disruptive.

We have received feedback from supporters who have said the constant sound from these horns has distracted their attention from the action on the field and ruined their enjoyment of the games.

– Mark Williams, Millennium Stadium Manager

The ban will not apply to the Speedway Grand Prix events.
