Facts and Figures

56,000 tonnes of concrete and steel went into creating the Millennium Stadium in a construction project that ran between 1997 and 1999 on the site of the old National Stadium.

To make the best use of the site space available, the design for Millennium Stadium saw the orientation of the main bowl area move through 90 degrees to run North to South.
