Make The Most Of The Heineken Cup

Rugby supporters from Leicester and Munster are being urged to get the most out of the Heineken Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, May 25.

Rugby supporters from Leicester and Munster are being urged to get the most out of the Heineken Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, May 25.
There will be a carnival atmosphere around the city centre as there has been for the FA Cup Final and other major matches in Cardiff.
We know that fans of both teams will have a wonderful time because we are enormously proud of what the Welsh capital has to offer, said Deputy Mayor Marion Drake.
Those who visit the city for the first time are amazed that the stadium is right in the centre, just a short drop kick away from all the restaurants, bars and shops.

The message is to use public transport wherever possible. The railway station is on the doorstep of the stadium. If fans must travel by car, we would urge them to allow plenty of time, to follow the signs from the approach routes to the city and to make use of the free park and ride services provided by the Council, said Deputy Mayor Christine Priday.
