Cardiff Millennium Stadium

 

Cardiff Millennium Stadium is one of the largest sports stadiums. It is the national stadium of Wales, located in the capital CardiffThis stadium has a roof that can be slid across in bad weather, or opened in fine weather. Cardiff Millennium Stadium holds many large scale events, such as rugby, football, rally, speedway, boxing and many music concerts. It is very expensive and difficult to build such indoor stadiums as well as the maintenance (to look after/ repairs) cost is very high. There are only a few large sports stadiums in the world since all the countries cannot afford to build such indoor stadiums.
