From March 19th to April 27th a host of aspiring players of all ages will take to the hallowed Principality turf for an incredible 10 days of thrilling rugby competition across 33 cup finals.

This will culminate in an extra special day of women’s rugby at the stadium on Saturday, 27th April when the Wales Women’s side face Italy in the Guinness Women’s Six Nations 2024 swiftly followed by the Women’s Bowl, Plate and Cup finals to round off the biggest celebration of women’s rugby in Wales ever witnessed.

“Our Road to Principality events are among the biggest rugby jamborees in Europe. Dozens of teams, hundreds of players and thousands of fans turn Principality Stadium into a passion-packed arena that has a distinct community feel,” said Geraint John, the WRU’s Community Rugby director.

“It’s a day out for the schools and clubs to remember, a never-to-be-forgotten experience for every player, male and female, that gets to play on the hallowed turf.

“Principality Stadium may be the home of Welsh rugby, but it was built with the collective help of every member club and #RTP24 is the third edition of a pay-back to the Welsh rugby community.

“The results from the three full editions to date have been massively encouraging. The standard of rugby has been amazing, fans have turned up by the bus load from far flung clubs and schools and our dedicated Inclusion Day continues to offer an opportunity to players from all ages, abilities and cultures to get involved in the national sport of Wales.

“If rugby is at the heart of the Welsh nation, then the ‘Road to Principality’ is at the core of the WRU.”

A preview of what’s to come

Welsh rugby’s biggest jamboree kicked off in the first half of the season. On Wednesday 6 December Bridgend & District Schools pipped Mynydd Mawr & Dinefwr Schools to win the Dewar Shield U16 for the first time in 18 years.Coleg Gwent then retained the Welsh Schools U18 Girls final by once again defeating Llandovery College, while the first all-schools final in the WSC Rugby U18 Boys competition was won by Llandovery College against Ysgol Glantaf.

Next up will be 10 incredible days of non-stop action that will showcase the true diversity and inclusion of the Welsh rugby family with players from the ages of 9-40+ bidding for glory at the home of Welsh rugby between 19 March – 27 April.

A potential record breaking conclusion

The #RTP24 series culminates in an international showdown as Wales take on Italy in the concluding fixture of the Guinness Women’s Six Nations.

Wales broke crowd records during the 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations, with a record sell-out crowd of 8,862 for their meeting with England, nearly doubling the previous record crowd of 4,962 against Ireland in the opening game of the tournament that same year.

This year, Wales are aiming to continue their record-breaking streak with another record attendance for Women’s rugby at Principality Stadium.
