2016 Sporting Events


Let’s not be modest here. We’re rather good at hosting major sporting events. We’ve got arguably the world’s best stadium, right in the middle of our capital city. We’ve hosted everything from extreme sailing to Test cricket to Ryder Cup golf. Here’s a small sample of the world-class sport coming to Wales in 2016.



Six Nations Rugby 



SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Golf Open 




29 - 31 May


The Celtic Manor, Newport


England’s Paul Wesselingh pipped our own Ian Woosnam to the 2015 title, after a superb 67 final round. But we forgive him, because he said such lovely things about Celtic Manor’s Roman Road Course and the warmth of the welcome.
