Wales Football and Rugby Seasons

Please help - Google is failing me tonight: in what time of year are football and rugby played?  Spring, summer, fall?  How long does a season last?

Thank you very much for any and all help.

I apologize, but I didn't see a "sports" tag.


They're both technically winter games.

Rugby Union runs September to May.

The football (soccer) season starts in August and ends the following May.

But outside of the professional game football is played pretty much all year round.

And I am currently overdosing on the Six Nations (Rugby Union is the only sport I watch, mostly because I don't really class it as a sport) - England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland France and Italy all pitting their national sides against each other.
Thank you! :)
