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.


Cricket is a summer game only, because it stops for rain, so mid-April to September. There are international matches played over winter, but those tend to be at times when they're not going to be televised (or at least watched live) because of the time differences.
Gotcha - thank you, :).
To clarify, those international matches are being played abroad rather than in Britain, in countries where it's either their summer or else they are tropical countries so that the weather is warm even in winter. And Sky TV does show a lot of those matches live, even though in some cases they are on in the middle of the night UK time.
