Summerest schedule revealed!

Community | 24th August 2022

Cardiff Rugby are delighted to reveal full plans for the return of Summerfest next week!

The popular family fun day will return to the Arms Park for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic, on Thursday, September 1, and will once again stage the club’s kit launch.

It promises to be a fun-filled day for all supporters with activities running throughout the day and two evening Q&A sessions for those working during normal office hours. 

Gates open at the Arms Park at 9.30am and supporters are invited to watch the team run session at 9.45am, as the Blue and Blacks finalise preparations to face Gloucester at Kingsholm on Friday, September 2. 

From then on there will be numerous activities, coaching sessions, games and inflatables with street food and music throughout. 

The Cardiff Rugby stars will mingle with supports, pose for selfies and assist the community coaches throughout the day so it is the perfect opportunity to meet your Blue and Black heroes and pick up some new kit ahead of the 2022-23 season.  

Dai Young will address supporters following the team run, while his assistant coaches will take part in a Q&A at 1pm. The director of rugby will then return for the Meet the New Signings Q&A at 6.30pm. 

The event is free to all supporters, who can email [email protected] to request tickets or click here.
