This informal package provides a two-course hot buffet luncheon and complimentary bar, alongside a celebrity guest speaker from the world of rugby.

During the match guests can expect to get up close to the action from their seats in either the west or east lower stand towards the try-line area.

Silver Package Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Silver Package is the entry-level official hospitality package at the Principality Stadium, it is an informal pre-match only package that provides seats in groups and a hospitality base prior to the match. This facility is off-site outside the stadium; however, it well organised and represents good value for those looking for official match tickets and a casual atmosphere.

Location

The Silver Package takes place in hotel function suites within Cardiff City Centre, in previous years Jurys Inn Cardiff (CF10 3UD) has been used for this package, which is situated close to the main pedestrianised shopping area, a 15-minute walk to the stadium. Two suites have been used at the hotel, both with a standing capacity of 200 guests, the Whitehall Suite & the Princes Suite.

Facility/Décor

This is a standing-only package, however individual groups are allocated a designated Poseur Table, which acts as a meeting point for your group, as well as a resting point for drinks. The suites are standard function suites with a fairly ordinary décor.

Private Tables

Private poseur tables are allocated for groups of 8-12 guests, smaller groups are required to share a poseur table.

Admission

The majority of seats included in the Silver Package are situated in the West Lower Stand although some may be allocated in the East Lower Stand. The seats are provided in a block for your group and are located side-on to the action, towards the try line. Please note that the lower tier of the Principality Stadium is quite shallow and does not afford a lofty elevated view. It will be necessary to leave the suite in plenty of time prior to kick-off because access to the West Stand is the opposite side of the stadium to the City Centre Hotels and there will also be queues at the turnstiles.

Catering

Catering consists of a two-course hot buffet luncheon, which is enjoyed standing-up. The facility closes prior to the match.
