Wales national football team and staff have been photographed showing their support for Wrexham’s bid to become City of Culture in 2025.

At the recent camp that saw Wales beat Austria 2-1 in a world cup qualifier as well as playing a friendly against the Czech Republic, players and staff took time out to pose for photos with the colourful Wrecsam bid logo.

FA Wales have previously stated:

“The Football Association of Wales itself was founded at the Wynnstay Arms Hotel in Wrexham in 1876 – and the town has been an integral part in the development and success of Welsh football ever since.

Clubs in the town and the surrounding areas are rich in passion, history and tradition. The recent developments taking place both on and off the field will hopefully create an exciting and successful future and we as an association want to play our part.

On the behalf of all of us here at the Football Association of Wales, we wholeheartedly support your bid, and we look forward to working with you over the next few months (and beyond) to plan a number of events and opportunities to ensure that Wrexham is named UK City of Culture 2025.”
