Over the weekend of 4 & 5 May there will be severe restrictions in access to and parking at Sophia Gardens.
On Saturday 5th, the main car park and lane to the left of the Sport Wales (SW) building will be fully occupied with Sky Sport lorries and shops / stalls. The grass area behind the pub will be open for parking but as there are also other main events taking place in SW it is likely that this area will be full by approximately 09:30. If you intend arriving after this time it is suggested that you use other forms of transport.
Our Finals on Sunday coincide with the ENG v PAK Twenty20 fixture which is due to start at 14:30. As with Saturday there is likely to be very little parking available at the Centre. Stewards will be on duty until 09:30 and will allow anybody who is involved with our Finals access, subject to their being spaces available. Please note that there will be no vehicle access whatsoever to the area between 12:30 and 14:30. The road will also be closed from 17:30 (the expected finish time) for a minimum of 30 minutes whilst the crowd disperses. However, if the match finishes early then the road will be closed at that time.
On street parking may be available in Canton or Pontcanna but it is likely that any spaces will be taken by mid-morning on Sunday
We appreciate that the situation is not ideal, but it seems an ideal opportunity to travel by train or bus, enjoy the food and drink on offer and spend a relaxing day watching your favourite sport.
