A ‘fan friendly’ kick-off time of 3pm has been chosen for the 2020 GUINNESS PRO14 final which takes place at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday, June 20.

After a run of four straight record attendances, this season’s PRO14 decider promises to be a sell-out occasion and fan experience will be placed at the heart of the events in the Welsh capital.

No matter where fans come from they will be able to choose between a weekend stay in Cardiff or a day trip thanks to the 3pm kick-off time.

June 20 will be the longest day of the year and supporters will have plenty of choice in how to make the most of it. Families will be able to enjoy child-friendly areas and entertainment within the stadium while all supporters will be able to take advantage of great food and beverage options on site.

Cardiff’s hospitality and atmosphere is known to rugby fans the world over and when matched with the GUINNESS PRO14 final’s reputation for absorbing contests and world-class play, it sets the stage for an unmissable event.

The best value tickets can be purchased right now with prices starting at just £13 for concessions, £26 for adults and a family ticket for two adults and two Under-16s is £64 (plus booking fees). Visit www.pro14rugby.org to buy now.

Martin Anayi, CEO of PRO14 Rugby, said: “Setting a 3pm kick-off was about making the 2020 GUINNESS PRO14 final as accessible as possible to supporters no matter where they come from. We know that rugby fans love to travel for big events and we’ve ensured they have a choice in making a day or a weekend of it.

“We also have a responsibility to ensure the next generation of fans are able to come and see their heroes perform right in front of their eyes and we hope a more traditional kick-off time will be a real winner for families.

“We hope that with all that Cardiff City centre has to offer that supporters will have plenty of entertainment options before and after the game. We’re delighted to be in Wales at a great venue like Cardiff City Stadium where we want to raise the bar for our fans and make this our best final yet.”
