FAW: Stars come out for Speed

Gary Speed: photo linked from bbc.co.uk

THE STARS COME OUT FOR GARY.

Wednesday 29th February 2012 will be a very special night at the Cardiff City Stadium as the whole of Wales will pay tribute to the memory of one of its most famous sons: Gary Speed MBE.


Former Wales international footballer and manager Gary left us in tragic circumstances last November. The match with Costa Rica will be part of a larger tribute to a man who was part of Welsh Football for more than twenty years and was guiding his young team to greater things.


However, the football match is only part of the celebrations. The Football Association of Wales is delighted to be able to announce a star-studded line-up of Welsh musical talent who will be performing before the game and at half time.


All areas of Welsh music are coming-together for the occasion.

From the world of rock and pop, needing no introduction, we welcome ‘Super Furry Animals’.


Mike Peters, formerly of ‘The Alarm’, now with ‘Big Country’, will be playing a set.


The incomparable Bryn Terfel will be singing, accompanied by the Risca Male Voice Choir.


Former Miss Wales, Courtenay Hamilton, will once again sing the anthem.

‘Only Men Aloud’ will be featured before the match and at half time, performing in their unique style that has won them a legion of fans.


The footballing greats of Wales have not been forgotten either. Invitations have been sent to some eighty former internationals that played alongside Gary during his career and many of them will be at the ground to pay their tribute at half time. Former clubs of Gary’s are also sending representatives, plus some of his former club team-mates and managers will be in attendance, including Alan Shearer and Howard Wilkinson. All of Gary’s family will be present.

Fans are urged to be at the stadium from 6.15pm onwards as the entertainment will start straight away with presentations on the big screen. The live entertainment will start towards 7pm. Full refreshments will be available at the concourse bars and snack bars, so why not get-in early, enjoy a drink and listen to the top-line artists who will be helping to make it a special night for all concerned.

Tickets can be purchased from Cardiff City FC. Tel: 0845 345 1400.

Prices are: £10 adults, £5 juniors and senior citizens.

FANS: Wales Under 21 v Andorra

Wales Under 21: Photo linked from faw.org.ukWALES v ANDORRA
The Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium will host Wales U21’s next Euro 2013 qualifying game and fans can get in for free.

The game against Andorra, the third U21s game at the stadium since Glyndŵr University took over ownership of the ground, will kick off at 4pm on Wednesday 29 February 2012.

Fans will be able to watch the game for free but need to pick up a ticket in advance. Only the Mold Road Stand will be open for the game.

Professor Michael Scott, Vice-Chancellor of Glyndŵr University, said: “We bought the stadium as a facility for the community and we’re delighted to be able to open it up to the people of Wrexham for major events such as this. We want as many groups as possible to attend families, schools, football supporters to get behind the next generation of Welsh football stars as they compete for a place in the 2013 European Championships.”

The game will precede the Welsh senior team’s Gary Speed Memorial Match against Costa Rica, which kicks off at 7.45pm in Cardiff on the same day.

A spokesperson for the Football Association of Wales said: “It had been hoped to move the game by 24 hours so that there would not be a clash with the senior international v Costa Rica in Cardiff. After consultation with UEFA, it has not been possible to do this. Therefore, an earlier kick off has been agreed to at least allow fans to go to the Under 21 match and then view the senior match on TV later that evening.”

School groups will be able to obtain tickets for the game through the Racecourse Community Foundation on 01978 296397.

Football clubs and teams should direct enquiries through Mark Roberts the FAW Trusts Football Development Officer on mark.roberts@welshfootballtrust.org.uk 

Corporate boxes, including a buffet, are available for £100 and can take a maximum of 10 guests. Businesses or groups interested in taking up the offer should email Phil Bennett at p.bennett@glyndwr.ac.uk

Tickets are available by calling into the Glyndŵr University Sports Centre reception between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday or by calling 01978 293275.
