International Sports Village (ISV) comprises a 36-hectare site located on a prime peninsula waterfront site at the heart of Cardiff Bay.

It is already established as a destination with a range of sporting activities which include the Cardiff International Pool, twin pad International Ice Arena, Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre, and the Cardiff International White Water
Rafting Centre.

The ISV also includes Cardiff Pointe, a new residential quarter of 800 plus new homes, incorporating a mix of townhouses, apartments and family homes.

There are currently a range of land parcels that are being brought forward for development including waterfront residential, hotel, leisure uses including adventure sports and retail opportunities.

A new velodrome is due to commence on site in spring/ summer of 2023 and this will be followed by the wider infrastructure inclusive of the delivery of the Closed Loop Circuit and active public space inclusive of the new Leisure Box provision of circa 40,000sqft which will be home to a number of sporting activities.

Proposals are being considered to better connect the Sports Village to Cardiff Bay and the wider city with improved public transport connections and water links with the potential of water taxis or buses being seen within Cardiff Bay within next 2 years.
