From the WFA website:

The WFA are pleased to announce, on St David’s Day, the appointment of two management teams for the Welsh National Walking Football over 50 and over 60 teams.

With the support of the FA of Wales, the WFA will assist the management teams in both the establishment of Walking Football Wales and a new National League of Wales. These initiatives are aimed at promoting awareness of the sport throughout Wales and at producing teams capable of competing at the WFA Euros to be held in England in 2019 and at the WFA World Cup in 2020.

Jason Allsopp, the coach at Cardiff City FC Foundation Walking Football Club, has been appointed as the Wales manager, assisted by Martin Pritchard. Jason says: “It is an absolute honour and privilege to be named as the Welsh walking football manager and given the task of creating a National team in this unique sport to compete at the Euro’s 2019 and World Cup 2020.”

Wales’ first International, for both age groups, is provisionally scheduled for October against England.


Based in North Wales? Walking football trials will also be taking place at Afon Spa at Deeside Leisure Centre on 19th May 2018 from 2pm.
