The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff Wales has been confirmed as a venue for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

England will host the 2015 Rugby World cup tournament but have included the 74,500-seat stadium in the Welsh capital after approval from the International Rugby Board.

“I am so pleased that thousands of Welsh rugby fans will now be able to claim real involvement in this great competition,” said Wales Rugby Union chairman David Pickering.

“Our proximity to the west of England and London means the Millennium Stadium makes enormous sense as a venue for these important fixtures.”

Not details of the matches that will be played at the venue have been released yet and the Rugby Football Union will confirm next year what other stadia will be used for Rugby World Cup matches.

Wales however is the only nation outside of England that will host Rugby World Cup matches.

The Millennium Stadium was built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup which ended with Australia beating France 35-12 in the final.

The stadium also hosted four matches during the 2007 tournament which was hosted by France.

“The Rugby World Cup is now one of the greatest tournaments on the sporting calendar and Wales can be proud to be playing a pivotal role in its delivery,” added Pickering, who is also Wales’ representative on the IRB Council.

    Yip it is a great stadium hoping to get down there for a 6 nations game before too long, BUT something is wrong with the rugby world – 1999, 2007 and now 2015, yet you have to back to 1995 for when the likes of Newlands hosted World Cup games?

    @ smallies72:
    I was most impressed with the services on Match Day.

    Everything ran smoothly, and was always kept clean.

    Not like in SA stadiums where you have to stand in a pool of p1ss at halftime.
