It's a shame if this development isn't earmarked to be completed in time for this big game, surely it is the biggest game the millennium stadium will ever stage? Presently the entrances on this side which should be the 'flagship' entrance to the stadium, are pretty uninspiring. Still over the moon that we've landed this gig - but wonder whether the fantastic venue that is the millennium stadium needs a 'bit of icing' on it!
Actually, you have to now question that whole development even starting before the match unless they get a move on in the next six months, plus get an operator signed up for the hotel. Nothing happens quickly in this country so I can't see it.
As far as the existing surface etc is concerned I wouldn't worry about it. I remember being outside the stadiums in Lisbon in Euro 2004 and there was actual rubble not a million miles from one of the grounds. That's a major tournament where the ground was used for group matches as well as the final.
This is just one game. There'll be more focus on other infrastructure issues I think. I'd be more concerned by the state of the M4 around Newport, enough flights being put on and how Central Square will actually look at that time.
