Club History       The then Llanelli Scarlets were founded in 2003, as one of the five (now four)                                    regional teams created by the Welsh Rugby Union.

Through the 2007/08 season they played most of their games at Stradey Park in  Llanelli, until the club's new stadium Parc y Scarlets (Scarlets Park), was                constructed in nearby Pemberton, and opened in November 2008.

The Stadium      The new stadium cost £23million. The stands have a slight curvature to allow for better views. The stadium's main stand,    on the south side of the ground, contains the club's shop and museum, the ticket                 office, and a large sports bar ("The Delme Thomas") The North Stand opposite has a terraced standing for 1,800 and is the best place for match-day atmosphere.

                                The West and East stands at either end are all-seater; though tend to be empty on matchdays as the Scarlets rarely get capacity crowds.

The approach to the main stand is known as the "Ray Gravell Legends Walkway",paved with bricks naming each Llanelli RFC and Scarlets player to have played for Wales. A statue of Ray Gravell is erected outside the stadium.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

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
