The Cymru Football Foundation – in collaboration with the Johan Cruyff Foundation and Wrexham County Borough Council – has seem our latest project unveiled at Ysgol St Christopher’s in Wrexham.

Through funding from Sport Wales, the CFF were able to support the largest special school in Wales to develop a brand new space to support pupils from St Christopher’s to enjoy taking part in physical activity in a safe, comfortable environment.

“As a school, we are so proud of the brand new facility and the opportunities it presents to include all our pupils. We would like to thank the Cruyff Foundation and the FAW for their support in making this happening and to the local authority for their support and co-ordination of the programme.”

“A huge thank you to our partners Sport Wales for their involvement and support. We will continue to work collaboratively to deliver our vision of inspirational and Fit-For-Future Football Facilities across Wales.”
