New resource lets pupils practice their Welsh language skills from home

Wrexham town centre is gearing up for one of the biggest football events in years as Wales’ first international challenge match of 2019 plays at our legendary Racecourse Stadium on Wednesday March 20.

This will be Wales’ first face-off against Trinidad & Tobago since May 2006 in Graz, Austria – Gareth Bale’s debut Welsh game where he assisted Robert Earnshaw’s winning goal in a 2-1 victory.

Fear not however… game day in the town centre definitely won’t be one to miss.


Make a day of it!

During the day there’s a heap of family-friendly activities on in the town centre as well as a selection of pubs and bars showcasing the game later on in the evening – what could be better than that? Take a look at what’s on for yourself:

    • The Continental Market
    • Spring Fun Fair
    • Activities on in Tŷ Pawb
    • Welsh Football related exhibits in the Wrexham Museum
    • A showcasing of the game in various Town Centre pubs and bars

Wales’ boss Ryan Giggs said; “I’m delighted that we’re able to play at the Racecourse for the first time in 10 years. We thoroughly enjoyed taking the team there for an open training session in May. The support was incredible and further fuelled our ambition to host a match at the historic ground.”

And for those of you who somehow aren’t already excited for this epic clash of international talent, take a look back at this historic moment of Welsh football – Mark Hughes scoring his famous scissor kick goal against Spain at the Racecourse in 1985!
