Opened in 2009 as a replacement for Cardiff City’s former home of Ninian Park, the Cardiff City Stadium was expanded to its current capacity of 33,280 in 2014.
The stadium has also become home of the Wales national football team, who have played the majority of their international fixtures at the ground after moving away from using the Millennium Stadium which was deemed too big.
The 2014 UEFA Super Cup was held at the Cardiff City Stadium, in which Real Madrid defeated Sevilla 2-0, and the 2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League Final in which Lyon defeated Paris Saint-Germain on penalties.
The Cardiff Blues rugby union team did also briefly play at the stadium between 2009 and 2012 before returning to Cardiff Arms Park. The 2011 European Challenge Cup Final was also hosted at the stadium.
