The Stadium      In their first two seasons the Ospreys shared their home games between St. Helens (home of Swansea RFC) AND The Gnoll (home of Neath RFC) . Since their third season in 2005/06 they have played at the Liberty Stadium, which they share with the Premiership football club Swansea City.

Built at a cost of £30million it is located near to the former site of the Morfa Athletics Stadium on the west side of the River Tawe. The stadium was christened White Rock by the Swansea residents, but was renamed the Liberty Stadium under a 10-year corporate sponsorship deal.

Although fairly conservative in its design, the stadium is still impressive.                It is completely enclosed with all four corners filled with seating. Each of the four stands is two-tiered, and three are of the same height, The West Stand at one side of the pitch is slightly taller, having a row of 28 hospitality boxes situated above the upper tier. An unusual feature is the great use of transparent roofing towards the South End of the stadium. This allows more natural light into the arena. Both ends have an electric scoreboard situated on the front of their roofs, although for some reason the scoreboard at the North End is larger than the one at the South End.

               

Who Plays There

The Ospreys were founded in 2003 when Welsh rugby adopted a regional structure, as one of five teams (now four) created to represent the country in the Celtic League (now Pro 12).

The Ospreys cover an area in South Wales that includes some of the most famous names in Welsh rugby-Swansea, Neath, Aberavon, Maesteg and Bridgend, who all still compete in the Welsh national leagues.

The Ospreys ground share with football Premier League side Swansea City.        

The Ospreys won the Celtic League in 2004-05, 2006-07, 2009-10 and 2011-12

The Ospreys also tasted victory in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in 2007-08

Success hasn’t been so forthcoming in Europe, where the Ospreys have yet to make it past the Quarter-Final stage, falling on that hurdle on three occasions.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)
  Professional rugby union is operating on the brink, with spiralling player wages leading to smaller squads and everyone from World Rugby to Ross Moriarty being accused of greed as they look to maximise income. Sponsorship revenues continue to fall, and doubts persist over whether the next television deal will be worth the same as … Continue reading Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
