Five reasons why stadia make great wedding venues

For rugby and football fans, celebrating your wedding day on the hallowed turf of your beloved club could be a dream come true, yet stadia offer so much more than the emotional attachment for enthusiasts and fans. Designed to host thousands of people on matchdays and with great hospitality and atmosphere, stadia make great wedding venues too.

We’ve put together five reasons why stadia are great places to host your nuptials.

  1. Location, location, location

If you are looking for a wedding venue in a central location, most stadia are in or near town and city centres with great transport links and plenty of parking options. Many are also close to hotel accommodation, which is a big plus for your wedding guests.
