Spring sport

Anthony Joshua (pictured above left) has once again chosen the Principality Stadium, our National Stadium in Cardiff, for the World Heavyweight boxing match with New Zealand champ Joseph Parker. The fight will take place on Saturday 31 March and somebody's O, has got to go! 

Spring is a busy season for Welsh sport, and one that is somewhat transitional. Football and Rugby seasons come to an end, whilst for our Rugby League teams, cricketers, golfers, cyclists and athletes their season starts.

March sees the conclusion of the RBS Six Nations campaign.  Wales host games in the Principality Stadium, Cardiff. It's a great atmosphere on a match day. In April Judgement Day takes place in the stadium, Cardiff Blues take on the Ospreys followed by Newport Gwent Dragons versus Scarlets.

Although people play all year round, spring is a good time to play a round of golf. There are almost 200 courses across Wales, including the beautiful Royal St David's, and the Celtic Manor Resort Twenty 10 course which hosted the Ryder Cup.

The Wales Football team and its new manager Ryan Giggs (pictured below) take part in the China Cup on the 22 March, taking on the hosts China in the first semi final. It's a good opportunity to win some silverware. 

The onset of spring provides the opportunity to get outside and realise those New Year’s resolutions. With Wales’ extensive network of public foot and cycle paths, it has never been easier to keep fit whilst enjoying the Welsh countryside.

Last of all, don't forget the Volvo Ocean Race is coming to Wales this year, in our Year of the Sea. The Village opens on the 27 May before the harbour race on 8 June and the leg start on 10 June.
