The FAW has announced the Wales men will play a match in Wrexham for the first in a decade.

The team will play an international challenge match against Trinidad and Tobago at the Racecourse on 20th March 2019.

It will be the first game of 2019 and will take place four days before the first Euro 2020 qualifying match against Slovakia in Cardiff.

Ryan Giggs, the national team manager, is looking forward to returning to the Racecourse:

"I’m delighted that we’re able to play at the Racecourse for the first time in 10 years. 

"We thoroughly enjoyed taking the team there for an open training session in May. 

"The support was incredible and further fuelled our ambition to host a match at the historic ground.

"Trinidad & Tobago will prove an interesting test for us and will be great preparation ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign."

Wales have only faced Trinidad & Tobago once previously in May 2006 in Austria.
