Rugby is more popular in Wales than football, especially in North Wales. During the rugby season that lasts from November to early spring, thousands of fans from different countries come to Cardiff to see fascinating matches at the Six Nations Championship. The national stadium—Principality Stadium—built like a spaceship, is one of the most atmospheric sporting venues in the world that gathers rugby lovers during numerous championships.
