FAW: Keenor Collection

FAW

FAW GIVE GO-AHEAD TO KEENOR COLLECTION AT WALES-ENGLAND CLASH

BUCKET COLLECTION RAISES MORE THAN £1,700 FOR KEENOR STATUE APPEAL 

The appeal committee is delighted to announce that we raised £1,710.89 (subject to checking at the bank) from the bucket collection outside the Millennium Stadium before Wales v England.

 

This was great considering many of the fans were not Cardiff City supporters or even regular Wales fans. We were allocated three of the stadium’s Gates 5,6 and 7 to collect from.

 

Thanks to the volunteers who made the event such a success, to those that generously chipped in cash and to the Football Association of Wales for allowing us to hold the bucket collection.

 

You can still help the appeal by buying one of the 8in figurines of Fred Keenor or the pin badges. You can get further details on purchasing these items by contacting fundraising@ccfctrust.org.

 

The efforts of everyone mean the kitty stands at over £46,000, well over half-way.



We’re delighted to announce on St David’s Day that the Football Association of Wales has given the go-ahead for a bucket collection in aid of the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal at the sell-out Wales-England clash.

David Craig, project manager of the appeal, said: “Playing England is always the biggest game for Welsh football fans, so we’re thrilled the FAW has generously given us permission to hold a bucket collection before the Euro qualifier later this month. With a sell-out audience, we are very hopeful of raising a substantial sum for the appeal thanks to the support of fans at the game. Football supporters have been enormously generous already and the message we’re getting from them is that we want to see a statue erected in aid of Fred Keenor, who captained both Wales and Cardiff City to great success, and reached the top of the game despite being badly injured in the Battle of the Somme. We’re hoping that supporters, wherever they come from, will get behind the appeal by digging deep into their pockets while also cheering Wales on to a famous victory over the old enemy. That would be fantastic,” said David.

The appeal, which was launched 11 months ago, has raised more than £41,000 almost half-way to the £85,000 cost of the permanent tribute to Fred Keenor.

The international takes place at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, March 26th, kick off 3pm.

TICKETS: Wales v England

Wales v England tickets : photo linked from footballshirtculture.com

Wales Supporters: Wales v England.

All remaining tickets to Wales supporters will be sent out this week, with the last batch being sent out on Friday (18/03) at the latest.



No more tickets on sale, the FAW have pretty much reached capacity of 66k.

The FAW is no longer accepting ticket applications for this match. Due to overwhelming demand we are now in a position to suspend ticket sales for the time being.  

Any application forms received from Monday 14th February onwards will be kept on standby, and will only be processed when we are sure we have tickets to satisfy them. Applications on standby will be processed in the order they were received, should any more tickets become available. 
Tickets are only guaranteed when payment has been processed. 

The Wales Supporters Club will remain open to new members for the duration of the campaign, however any new members will not be sent Wales v England ticketing information.  

Hospitality for this match is still available - anyone interested should contact Suzanne Twamley on stwamley@faw.co.uk for further information. - [Thu 17/02/2011]

Wales v England ticket update:

Current sales 40,000. [Fri 04/02/2011]

Your guests must also be Wales supporters.

Ticket and red membership application


updated:  Thu, 3 February, 2011 20:02 UK.


The Wales Supporters Club is still open and fans are welcome to sign up. Membership forms can be downloaded from the FAW website at
www.faw.org.uk/ticket-information/membership.
Red Membership is free of charge and despite previously not been given any priority on tickets, these members are eligible to purchase one ticket each for this match.

Gold and Silver members of the Wales Supporters Club will be given the opportunity to purchase up to five tickets, although they must provide details of every person they are buying a ticket for. Members will be responsible for everyone in their party and the FAW will terminate the membership of anyone who passes tickets on to away fans.

The FAW has taken the decision to sell tickets for the above match to members only, in order to maximise the level of Welsh support in the Millennium Stadium and limit the number of home-end tickets being passed on to away fans.

Due to the increased security of the match, the FAW is not allowed to hold a general public sale, as we would normally do with other home matches. It is imperative we minimise the risk of having away fans in the home end and for this reason we have agreed to only sell tickets to Wales Supporters Club members, Welsh football clubs and Welsh schools / associations.

As well as Wales Supporters Club members, we are making tickets available to every football club and school in Wales. The FAW has also introduced a Kickback scheme for this match, whereby clubs and schools will be financially rewarded for the purchase of tickets and will receive 25% cash back off the total cost of tickets purchased.

Thus, the purchase of 100 adult tickets at £25.00 per ticket has a face value of £2,500.00. With the Kickback scheme this order would equate to £625.00 cash back. Junior and senior citizen prices are reduced further but will operate under the same cash back principle.

This decision has been made to provide a mechanism for Welsh clubs and schools to reward their supporters and pupils and to provide a potential source of income.
There will be no limit on the number of tickets a club or school can order, provided all tickets are supplied to Welsh fans only.

The FAW will send application forms to all Wales Supporters Club members in the next week. Forms will be sent to football clubs from both the FAW and via Area Associations over the next couple of weeks. Any Welsh schools, associations or club groups who would like to apply for tickets should email tickets@faw.co.uk stating the contact name, school or club
name and postal address. Application forms will be sent out within a week.

The closing date for all applications is Monday 31st January 2011. Tickets are subject to availability and applications will be processed on a first come first served basis.

Gary Speed has named the Wales squad that travel to Ireland next week. For the game in Dublin, Gary Speed is without the injured Gareth Bale and Craig Bellamy, both players not considered. Returning into the squad are Danny Gabbidon (West Ham United - from retirement), Freddy Eastwood (Coventry City) and Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal - Cardiff City loan).

Wales manager Gary Speed's quotes: "Simon said he was tempted but at the moment he wants to concentrate on his Fulham career and I respect that totally. Obviously Simon is a quality player but I totally respect his decision."  - on the return of Simon Davies. I am sure everyone is aware of Craig's situation and it would be wrong of me to ask him to play on Tuesday after playing on Sunday. The last thing we want is players going back to their clubs injured." - on Craig Bellamy

"I'm delighted he's available. He is really relishing the challenge and the Ireland game might come at the right time for him. He is hopefully one of the cogs in the wheel that will make us successful. He's one of those players who can change a game." - on Aaron Ramsey.

FAW: New assistant manager

RaymondVerheijen

ASSISTANT MANAGER
Dutchman Raymond Verheijen has been confirmed as the new Wales assistant manager.

Verheijen (age 39) is well known for his expertise on tactics, planning and conditioning, and has worked with some of the best coaches in world football, having worked alongside Frank Rijkaard, Louis Van Gaal, Guus Hiddink and Dick Advocaat.

In the process he has worked towards and been involved in the last seven major tournaments with four different countries, the Netherlands, Russia, South Korea and Australia, reaching 5 semi finals.

Wales will be hoping that the experience gained will be beneficial as under Speed they look to qualify for major finals for the first time since 1958.

”I am delighted to have Raymond on board as part of my team. His experience will prove invaluable and his credentials are first class. I look forward to working closely with him over the next few years starting of course with my first game in charge in Dublin on Tuesday”. - Gary Speed.
