Introducing our £20million International Sports Village

We have a wealth of experience in organising sports events and competitions at all levels; and our sports facilities are among the finest university sports facilities in the UK.

In 2014 we are proud to host the IPC Athletics European Championships and the FIT European Touch Championships. In 2016 we will play host to the FISU Rugby 7s University World Championship.

We currently play host to dozens of events each year including general training camps, pre-competition preparation, club meetings, competitions and community engagement events. We have an ongoing relationship with the Ospreys including hosting a training camp each summer for promising overseas rugby players and in recent years we've hosted organisations as diverse as the Mexican paralympics squad, Sheffield and Leeds swimming clubs and the Birchfield Harriers athletics club.

  • the Wales National Pool;
  • an 8 lane athletics stadium;
  • indoor athletics training centre;
  • two floodlit water based astroturf pitches;
  • 80+ station gymnasium;
