Blues On Summer Tour in the Community

15th June 2006

Cardiff Blues will be hosting their annual summer Fun Day for junior members and their families on Sunday 16th July from 12pm at Cardiff Arms Park.

The event will showcase many exciting activities including the legendary mascot race, bouncy castles, assault courses, climbing wall, rugby coaching from Blues players and coaches as well as visits from South Wales Police, South Wales Fire Brigade, the army and the RNLI. There will be many give-aways and prizes to be won as well as face painting, entertainers, cheerleaders, and a chance to be creative with painting and craft stalls.

Young supporters will have the chance to tour the Cardiff Arms Park ground, the trophy room and changing rooms and meet the Cardiff Blues team. The Blues are also launching their new home kit this summer so there will be the exclusive chance for a sneak preview of players modelling the kit and you can be amongst the first to get your hands on the new shirt.

The fun day is a free event and all supporters are welcome. However if you can’t make the 16th July, you will have the opportunity to see more of the Blues this summer than ever before. Before the fun day, the Blues kick off their tour around each of the five local authorities that make up the region, starting with Party Ponti at Ynys Angharad Park on 1st & 2nd July.

On the 22 & 23 July squad members will be attending the Tesco Children’s Festival at Coopers Field, Cardiff and following the success of last year’s visit the Blues will be returning to Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells from the 24th to 27th of July before moving to The Big Cheese in Caerphilly from the 29th to 30th of July.

At each event young followers will be able to meet their heroes, take part in rugby coaching and pick up some free giveaways. August will also be an extremely busy month with visits to the Big Welsh Bite in Pontypridd from the 4th to 6th of August, the Vale of Glamorgan Show in Fonmon Castle on 16 August and the Merthyr Show in Cyfarthfa Castle on the 28th of August.

In addition to all these events the players will also be helping out in the Future Blues summer coaching camps which offer children the opportunity to develop basic rugby skills and to stay active over the summer. There are a limited number of places available on each of the summer rugby camps, so if you have not booked yet you should do so soon – visit for more information.
