The Welsh Rugby Union is inviting all fans to a free-to-enter Supporters Village at the Millennium Stadium today - dubbed 'Village 13' in an ode to the points differential facing Warren Gatland's Wales side which kicks off its bid for RBS 6 Nations Championship Title glory against Ireland at 17.30hrs.
'Village 13' is located on Westgate street in between Gates three and four of the Millennium Stadium, adjacent to the official WRU shop, and will be fully equipped with a giant screen, bar, food outlets, public restrooms and musical entertainment.
Fans will be able to take in all three RBS 6 Nations matches on the giant screen - starting with Italy v France (kick off 13:15hrs), England v Scotland (kick off 15:30hrs) and then the eagerly anticipated Championship decider between Wales v Ireland (kick off 17:30hrs).
All fans are welcome to the free of charge facility, whether in possession of a match ticket or not, to enjoy the final day of the RBS 6 Nations Championship at Millennium Stadium, home of the Welsh rugby team.
'Village 13', the supporters village, will be open from 1pm until 9pm and an added bonus to all fans will be the arrival of both team buses which take a route into the stadium immediately adjacent to the newly created and entirely unique outdoor venue.
"We are offering a unique experience to Wales fans to sample the Millennium Stadium atmosphere and get as close to all the action as possible, completely free of charge," said WRU head of marketing Gwyn Dolphin.
"For fans who have been unable to get a ticket to the sell-out game, this will be the next best thing with all the action going on inside just a stone's throw away and all the atmosphere set to be spilling out into Village 13.
"The name of our new Village is our way of willing the Wales team on and embracing the number 13, which is said to be unlucky for some, we want all the fans to join us in Village 13 and create all the right vibes to ensure the number is lucky for Wales."
