Catch all the 6 Nations rugby action on Swansea’s Big Screen
All the matches from the 2012 RBS 6 Nations rugby tournament will be screened on Swansea's Big Screen in the city centre
And to make sure no one misses a minute of the action the Big Screen in Castle Square will be showing all Wales’ matches along with the majority of the other games taking place throughout the tournament.
First up is France v Italy on Saturday 4 February at 2.30pm, followed by Scotland v England at 5.00pm. Wales’ first game is against Ireland on Sunday 5 February kicking off at 3pm.
The rest of the matches will be shown throughout February and March culminating with the last game on the screen, England v Ireland, on Saturday 17 March (5.00pm).
Frances Jenkins, Strategic Manager for Tourism, Marketing and Events said,
“Most people that watch the sporting events on the Big Screen have come into the city centre to shop, but then also take the opportunity to catch up on the latest scores. Large crowds turned out to watch Wales’ rugby world cup matches against France and Australia last October and we are anticipating a similar response for the 6 Nations tournament which will be shown live during February and March.
“The Big Screen always proves popular and the 6 Nations coverage is just the start of a fantastic programme of events which will also include family films, cultural events and of course the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“The Big Screen provides a great City Centre attraction and we hope that all who come to watch have a great time, whatever the weather.”
The much anticipated England v Wales game on 25 February marks the start of Swansea’s week long Welsh festival, St David’s Week. St David’s Week runs until 4 March with a programme of events and activities celebrating all things Welsh.
