UCL Trophy Comes To Swansea!

Don't miss the chance to get a photo with the iconic UEFA Champions League trophy.

As Cardiff prepares to host the UEFA Champions League Final, football fans are getting a closer look at the coveted trophy.

Following the UCL Semi Final Draw, which was held in Nyon, Switzerland on 21st April, the UEFA Champions League Trophy embarked on a "Legendary Journey" to the Welsh Capital.

It's part of plans to ensure the whole of Wales has an opportunity to engage with the UEFA Champions League Final and UEFA Women's Champions League Final, both hosted in Cardiff in June.

2017 UEFA Champions League Final Ambassador, Ian Rush, and First Minister for Wales, Carwyn Jones, travelled to Switzerland to officially receive the iconic silverware from UEFA, and bring it to Wales, where it will stay until the Champions claim it on June 3.

Following an official welcome to Cardiff and public parade of the Trophies from Cardiff Castle to the National Stadium of Wales on April 21 the FAW has embarked on a pan-Wales trophy tour, taking the UCL Trophy Experience to over 20 venues across Wales, stopping at a selection of schools, clubs and popular public locations before arriving back in Cardiff, where it will be displayed as part of the highly-anticipated UEFA Champions Festival from 1-4 June.

The Trophies will be in Swansea on Saturday 22 April

Jonathan Ford, Chief Executive of the Football Association of Wales said,  "The UEFA Women's Champions League Final represents the highest standards in Women's football, and I'd urge anyone who can to come to Cardiff City Stadium on 1st June to witness what will undoubtedly be a fantastic match, an incredible family atmosphere, and one of the most memorable Finals to date."
