Ed Sheeran in Cardiff: Drink prices in the Principality Stadium

With the first of three gigs on Ed Sheeran’s Mathmatics tour in Cardiff done and dusted off, fans are preparing to sing their hearts out on the remaining dates.

And with thousands of Sheerios (the Shape of You singer’s affectionate name for fans) entering the Principality’s stadium, which hosts 70,000 (see here for), one of the first things most people head towards are likely to head for, before they sit down or get up – after they’ve spent a bob or two on some amazing Ed Sheeran merch (watch what’s on offer here), it’s the bar. And with plenty of drinks on offer, no one will go thirsty.

What is on offer and how much will it cost?

With a host of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks ranging from £2.00 to £7.50, be prepared to dig a little deeper into your pockets and spend a little more than you normally would at your local pub. If you’re a vino fan, a glass of sparkling white or rosé wine (200ml) is the most expensive of the drinks at £7.50 while a glass of regular wine with no bubbles is a bit lighter on the cords. the purse at £6.

Guinness fans will also have to shell out cash at £6.50 a pint, as will Amstel drinkers, although they have the option of taking half, which costs just £3.25 a drink . Save 50p and opt for a WRU Gold beer if that’s more to your taste. If Heineken is more your scene, however, you’re in luck as it’s the cheapest of the £3.50 alcoholic options – just 20p more than 500ml of Pepsi.

If you’re on the tough stuff – good old-fashioned water – you can get a packet of crisps and a bottle of Welsh water for £4.00 in total (£2.00 each).

Cardiff was a sight to behold last night as the singer-songwriter filled the city center with fans from all over – check out the women who traveled 16 hours from Mexico to see him here – and the two gigs remaining in the capital (this eveningFriday May 27 and Saturday May 27) are sure to be just as buzzy.

If you’re coming to town to see Ed Sheeran, you can read everything you need to know about attending the concerts, where to park to the set list here. As there will be road closures in the city centre, please plan your trip accordingly.

If you’re traveling by train, Great Western Railway is making over 40 extra trains available – that’s almost 20,000 extra train seats – to help fans get to and from the concert. The global megastar will also be performing come rain or shine, as the roof of the Principality will remain open, so be prepared for all weather eventualities and bring a raincoat.
