Wales will play New Zealand, Denmark and Colombia, all for the first time at senior level, in the Matchworld Women's Cup, taking place in Switzerland in June.
The friendly tournament will offer high quality opposition for Wales, as Manager Jarmo Matikainen prepares them for the UEFA Women's European Championship 2013 qualifying stage.
Both Colombia and New Zealand will be readying themselves for this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup, being held in Germany in June and July. Colombia make their first appearance in the Women's World Cup, after rising through the South American ranks. New Zealand take part for the third time, after a flawless qualifying campaign which saw them score 50 goals and concede none in the Oceanic region qualiers.
Denmark, ranked 7th in Europe, narrowly missed out on a World Cup spot. Winners of Group Three in the European qualifying competition, they were defeated by fellow Scandanavians Sweden, and Switzerland in the subsequent play-off matches.
The tournament, organised by Matchworld Football SA, will run from 15th to 20th June, with fixtures as follows:
15th June 2011, Savièse
New Zealand v Wales, kick off 6pm (5pm UK time)
