Football 'more than a game' in Wales

Football is taking centre stage in Wales this summer, with the national team competing at EURO 2016 – their first major finals since 1958.

As Chris Coleman’s team make history at their first ever European Championships – which saw them top Group B ahead of England, Slovakia and Russia – a video from the Football Association of Wales (FAW) Trust demonstrates the legacy that Euro 2016 will leave for grassroots football in Wales.

Featuring coaches, parents, teachers and senior FAW staff, the video captures the importance of the grassroots game and how football is ‘more than a game’ in Wales.

Club Website has been a partner of the FAW Trust – the charitable arm of the FAW who are responsible for the development of football in Wales – since 2008.

This partnership is central to the FAW’s ongoing support for football in Wales and enables all affiliated leagues and clubs to host their very own website completely free of charge.

You can sign up here for a free club website or a free league website – it takes just two minutes.
