If you are not familiar with Cardiff Central station and the queuing system, please view the queue plan below.


Station staff will be distributing queue plan to passengers during the day. If passengers are not attending the game, we would strongly recommend they travel at a different time to avoid the crowds. Every effort is made to provide as much additional capacity as possible for major events in Cardiff and all our available trains will be in use.
