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.

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.

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….

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?
