Cymru’s final UEFA Women’s Nations League matches, against Iceland (Friday 1 December) and Germany (Tuesday 5 December) will be played at the Cardiff City Stadium and Swansea.com Stadium.
The matches will be the final games of the inaugural UEFA Women’s Nations League campaign, and Cymru will be hoping to welcome the Red Wall to both stadiums for what will be two key games to conclude the exciting competition which starts next week away to Iceland (Friday 22 September) and home to Denmark (Tuesday 26 September).
Cymru have witnessed record attendances recently at the Cardiff City Stadium, peaking with the FIFA Women’s World Cup play-off semi-final against Bosnia & Herzegovina last October which saw 15,200 of the Red Wall attend. The last time Cymru played at the Swansea.com Stadium was in June 2018, against the same side. Kayleigh Green’s goal was the difference in that match where a vital three points were gained to secure Cymru’s highest ever FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification round finish up to that point.
Speaking about the announcement, Gemma Grainger said; “We know the Cardiff City Stadium is a fortress for us and hopefully we can build on the attendances we have set there over the last few years when we face Iceland. It’s been a few years since we’ve played at the Swansea.com stadium, but I can’t wait to face Germany there December in what will be a great test for us. The Red Wall means so much for us and I’m positive we will see them come and support us in their numbers for both matches.”
Speaking about playing in her home city, Cymru midfielder Rachel Rowe said “Being born and bred in Swansea and having played for the club for several years, I can’t wait to play at the Swansea.com Stadium in December. The support we’ve had over the last few years has been incredible and I can’t wait to see the Red Wall in my home city against one of the world’s strongest teams.”
