San Marino to the sword?

March 28 2007

I’m going to watch Wales versus San Marino tonight. Ryan Giggs is predicting a goal-fest. I hope he’s right.

There is, however, something a little bit embarrassing about playing a team like San Marino in an enormous stadium like the Millennium Stadium when there are only 15,000 people there.

I agree with Jason Koumas that games like this really should be played at Cardiff’s Ninian Park (capacity: 22,000), or Swansea’s Liberty Stadium (capacity: 20,000). A full house at either of these grounds – and particularly Ninian Park – would generate a much better atmosphere.

I spoke to Bluebirds chairman Peter Ridsdale yesterday. He’s also going to the game tonight, but he told me he’d love to have Wales games at Ninian Park.

Apparently all the FAW have to do is pick up the phone, so maybe that rift isn’t as serious as I thought
