Captains Club Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Captains Club is an upgraded hospitality product introduced by the Welsh Rugby Union, branded around the attendance of a previous Welsh Captain. In essence, the suite consists of several corporate hospitality boxes opened up into one attractive lounge, with a capacity of 90 guests. Places in the suite are sold as an annual membership but individual match-day hospitality is also available.

Location

The suite is situated at the top of the South Middle Stand on the Hospitality Box Level (the prestigious Level 5) - the Middle Tier is the premium area to view rugby in the Principality Stadium. The South Stand is situated behind the posts so it may not be the ideal location for some guests.

Facility/Décor

The suite is completely glass-fronted, affording superb views of the hallowed turf. It is decorated to a high standard with Welsh rugby branding honouring former international captains.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for 10 guests, smaller groups are required to share a table.

Admission

The seats are situated on a private balcony, directly in front of the suite through glass sliding doors. Convenient access to the suite is available throughout the day.

Catering

Catering consists of a five-course fine-dining luncheon, followed by a half-time cheese cart and additional refreshments post-match.

Drinks

Service

Entertainment

The experience allows you to rub shoulders with a past Welsh Captain, such as Sam Warburton.

Audio-Visual

Car Parking

There are no car park passes included in this package, which means guests will have to use public transport, taxis, or source parking themselves Cardiff City Centre.
