Wales to face Trinidad & Tobago at the Racecourse

The senior men’s team will return to play at the Racecourse in Wrexham for the first in 10 years for an international challenge match against Trinidad and Tobago on 20 March 2019.

Wales have only faced Trinidad & Tobago once previously, back in May 2006. The teams met on neutral ground at the UPC Arena in Graz, Austria where Robert Earnshaw netted twice in a 2-1 victory.

This will be the first game of 2019 for Ryan Giggs’ side, in preparation for their first EURO 2020 qualifying match against Slovakia 4 days later in Cardiff.

Ryan Giggs, the national team manager, is looking forward to returning to the Racecourse:

“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.

“Trinidad & Tobago will prove an interesting test for us and will be great preparation ahead of the EURO 2020 qualifying campaign.”

Ticket information will be announced in due course on faw.cymru.
