Dragons have confirmed that their Pro14 home games have been shifted to Principality Stadium.

The decision follows after the pitch at Rodney Parade has concerns over maintenance due to adverse weather conditions with Newport County AFC already shifting their games to Cardiff City Stadium.

This means Dragons will be hosting Ulster Rugby, Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby on 13th, 21st and 28th March respectively at the home of the Welsh Rugby Union.

Dragons Managing Director Mark Jones is hoping for the maintenance work at Rodney Parade to be completed before they return in April.

“We are extremely grateful to our colleagues at the WRU, the Guinness PRO14 and our host broadcasters for their support and understanding with this venue change.

“The move will allow us to carry out vital work on the pitch throughout March before the Dragons and Newport County return home for the conclusion of the 2020/21 season.”

Following the three Pro14 games, Dragons also host Northampton Saints in the round-of-16 clash in the European Challenge Cup in the first week of April.

“We’re delighted to welcome the Dragons to Principality Stadium for their next three PRO14 home games," said Principality Stadium Manager Mark Williams.

"Having recently hosted both Ireland and England for the Guinness Six Nations, the stadium is Covid secure and is ready to go.

"Despite the absence of fans, it’s a wonderful opportunity to see rugby played in this magnificent stadium once again.”
