From 19th August, West Wales will play host to a prestigious European football tournament, the first UEFA finals tournament Wales has ever hosted.
There are three towns hosting matches. Carmarthen (Richmond Park), Llanelli (Stebbonheath and Parc y Scarlets) and Haverfordwest (Bridge Meadow).
Momentum and interest in the tournament is really gathering pace now, with less than two weeks to go until Wales kick off the tournament against Denmark at Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli.
On Saturday, the Football Association of Wales hosted a tournament launch event in Castle Square, Swansea. The response from the public was overwhelming, with people of all ages getting involved in the competitions and activities on offer.
A particular hit was the freestyle football skills classes being held throughout the day, as was the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship trophy which was on display throughout.
Along with members of the women's squad, Wales National Team Manager, Chris Coleman made an appearance to show his support for the saying: "This is a massive opportunity for Wales. Being awarded a UEFA Finals Tournament shows that Wales is ready and able to host such a prestigious football event."
Chris went on to mention the legacy and long term benefits of the tournament: "In terms of girl's participation in the sport, this (tournament) will have a huge impact. It will highlight the skill levels in the women's game, and provide young people with sporting role models."
