Sunday’s game moves to Cardiff City Stadium

New venue for Newport Gwent Dragons V London Wasps this Sunday 12th December, KO 1PM

Following an inspection at Rodney Parade by WRU official, Dai Davies, and representatives of Newport Gwent Dragons today (Thursday, 9 December), it was deemed due to current adverse weather conditions that the pitch would not be in a safe enough condition for the Heineken Cup Round 3, Pool 6 match between Newport Gwent Dragons and London Wasps to go ahead as scheduled on Sunday, 12 December.

Therefore, the match is moved from Rodney Parade to Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday, 12 December with the 1.00pm kick-off unchanged.

Newport Gwent Dragons have tonight confirmed on their website that the following is in place to help supporters with the relocation of the game:

  • To assist with the cost of travel, a return bus service to the Cardiff City Stadium will be provided by Newport Transport, leaving from Rodney Parade.
  • Supporters will be able to park free of charge at Rodney Parade before catching the bus to Cardiff.
  • Busses will run from 11am with the Ticket Office, Clubhouse Bar and Club Shop open from 9am - parking is limited and supporters are advised to get down early.
  • Bus travel is available at £2 per head and to offset these costs, match tickets have been slashed to just £10 for adults, students and concessions, with under-16s going free. For stand tickets this presents a saving of £13 per ticket including transport to and from Rodney Parade
  • Tickets already purchased remain valid, and if you have already purchased tickets, you will be entitled to a refund of the difference - please contact the Rodney Parade ticket office directly on 01633 674990.
  • All enquiries need to go to Newport Gwent Dragons Ticket Office for this game, London Wasps will be unable to process refunds.
