About

Beneath the 74,000 capacity home of Welsh rugby, the Millennium Stadium, lies the entire history of the sport in Wales.
Early caps, muddied shirts, programmes and photographs from every age of our proud rugby heritage have been packed away neatly in boxes somewhere beneath the Northern 22, and now, for the first time, the treasury is opening up to the public. The minutes of each board meeting since 1892 will be seen, personal items of several iconic players brought to light, and we've even unearthed some of the weird and wonderful gifts brought by visiting teams from abroad; Argentinian daggers, risqué Yugoslavian sculpture, and a technological miracle from 1980's Japan.....
