Matty Jones’ side kick off their qualifying campaign with an away fixture against the top seeds in Group I as they travel to Denmark on Tuesday 20 June 2023, with a 5pm BST kick off at the Vejle Stadium.
Cymru will face two away fixtures in the September and October international windows when they take on Lithuania (Tuesday 12 September) and the Czech Republic (Friday 13 October).
They will then conclude the year with a home double-header against Iceland and Denmark on Thursday 16 November and Monday 20 November respectively.
Cymru will welcome Lithuania to Wales on Friday 22 March 2024, then travel to Iceland on Tuesday 10 September before rounding off their group with a home clash against the Czech Republic on Friday 11 October.
The matches will be broadcast live on S4C Clic and Sgorio’s YouTube and Facebook, with Welsh and English commentary available.
Ifan Gwilym and former Cymru U19 player Dylan Blain will provide the Welsh commentary, while English commentary by Meilyr Emrys and Marc Williams, who has six caps and two goals for Cymru U21 to his name.
Marc Williams said: “It’s great that the Under 21 games are available live and it’s a privilege to be part of the commentary team. I’m looking forward to seeing Matty Jones’ team in action and the vital role it has to play in developing players for the future of Welsh football.
“Looking back at my own career, being capped from under 16 all the way through to under 21 were amazing experiences and extremely proud moments. Whatever the level, there’s no feeling that beats singing the national anthem.
“These lads have a great opportunity to make a name for themselves and use these opportunities to showcase their talents, like so many players throughout the Welsh system have done recently.”
