Wrexham v Connah’s Quay to set women’s domestic football attendance record

The match between Wrexham and Connah’s Quay Nomads in the Genero Adran North league, scheduled for Sunday, March 26th at 2:00 PM BST, is set to attract the largest ever audience for a women’s domestic fixture in Wales.

According to Wrexham, over 6,000 tickets have already been sold for the upcoming match at The Racecourse. This exceeds the previous record of 5,175 attendees, set during Cardiff City Women’s triumph over Abergavenny in October of last year.

After the game, the league trophy will be awarded to the reigning champions, Wrexham. A victory at home would also ensure a flawless 100% record for Steve Dale’s squad, who have emerged victorious in all 11 of their previous matches this season.

Despite their success, Wrexham still have work to do if they hope to earn promotion to the Adran Premier, the highest level of women’s football in Wales, for the next season.

In January, the club announced its intention to apply for a tier-one license, which is necessary for teams competing in the Adran Premier. Additionally, they have plans to transition to a semi-professional status.

If Wrexham is granted the tier-one license, they will have to face Briton Ferry Llansawel in a play-off match. Briton Ferry Llansawel secured the Adran South title by defeating Caldicot Town on Tuesday night.

The victor of the play-off will advance to the top-flight league in Wales for the next season.
