Rugby fans share Principality Stadium memories

 

Principality Building Society is running a competition to find Welsh rugby fans’ best memories and unique stories from more than 20 years of games at the Principality (formerly Millennium) stadium.

The building society has brought together a panel of judges, which includes Welsh rugby legend Shane Williams - who along with his fellow judges, will chose up to 12 of their favourite stories.

Each of the 12 winners will have their own personal sign fixed to a seat at Principality Stadium, meaning their stories can live on and be enjoyed by fans, when the doors of the stadium are able to be re-opened.

Winners will also be invited to watch a match, when allowed.

One of those to share his story is Jeff Davies, the longest-standing member of the BBC National Chorus of Wales, and life-long rugby fan.

Mr Davies said: “I have so many wonderful memories of being in the stands, but my favourite must be the day myself and the choir were unexpectedly given spare tickets to stay and watch a crucial match against France.

“After singing on the pitch, we took our seats and as the game heated up, we did what came naturally. We sang.

"As we did, the melodies rippled through the crowd until the whole stadium was alive with Hymns and Arias.

The competition is open until midnight on February 28. To find out more, or enter your standout story, visit www.principality.co.uk/everyseat
