Wales National Team – Fans’ Homecoming Show

Welsh fans given opportunity to welcome home players and staff following historic Euro 2016 campaign

The Football Association of Wales will be hosting a special event for Welsh football fans in Cardiff to celebrate the achievements of Chris Coleman’s squad and staff following EURO 2016.

It will take place at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday, July 8 and start at 5.15pm (turnstiles open at 5pm for the public)

After qualifying for a first major tournament since 1958, Wales finished top of their group that included England, Slovakia and Russia before going on to reach the semi-finals.

The support both in France and back on home soil has been nothing short of remarkable and this event gives the players and supporters the chance to celebrate together.

There will be entertainment on stage from 5.15pm – including music from Manic Street Preachers - while the players and staff presentation will begin at 6.45pm. Immediately prior to the event there will also be a celebratory open top bus tour for the team from the city centre for the public to show their appreciation. This is due to start at Cardiff Castle at 4pm and ends at Cardiff City Stadium at 5.30pm - further details regarding the route will be published by the end of today.

FAW Chief Executive Jonathan Ford said: “We feel this event is a great way of everyone celebrating what has been a historic period for Welsh football.

“The scenes we have seen both at home and over in France have been fantastic and we hope that our passionate supporters can enjoy another moment with the players to end a memorable few weeks.”

There will be live coverage of this momentous occasion as BBC Wales follows the homecoming celebrations every step of the way. Extensive coverage of the team’s arrival back in Wales, as well as the Fans’ Homecoming Show, will be available on TV, radio and online in English and in Welsh.
