The Ospreys have announced their plan to relocate their home grounds to St Helen’s in Swansea starting with the 2025-26 season.

Currently, they play at the Stadium, which is also the home of the Championship football club Swansea, and will continue to do so for the next season.

According to the Ospreys, the multi-million-pound investment at St Helen’s Sports Ground will involve the installation of a new 4G pitch, the construction of new stands, and the refurbishment of the clubhouse.

Swansea Rugby Club and Swansea University will continue to play at St Helen’s, while the Ospreys plan to host a greater number of community games there.

“Moving to a ground we can call our own home will be transformational for everyone involved with the club, including players, staff, supporters and sponsors,” Ospreys chief executive Lance Bradley said.

“Our investment demonstrates our confidence not only in the plans we have both on and off the pitch, but also our confidence in the future of Welsh rugby and the plans being developed by the Welsh Rugby Union.”

Leader of Swansea council Rob Stewart is delighted with Ospreys' decision to choose the venue as their home ground.

“We're delighted with the Ospreys announcement that they'd like to return to St Helen's; it's something many Ospreys fans will be very excited about.

"We’ve worked closely with Lance and his team throughout their search for a preferred new home, and this is really great news for the city. Swansea is a fantastic location for elite sport, with Swansea University a leader in the field of sports science.

"We have significant ambitions for a sports science park in Swansea and the Ospreys’ aim to commit their long-term future to Swansea aligns with this; we'll work hard with them and others to explore their vision over the coming weeks and months.

"There remains more work to do but we now have clarity to move forward with
