Wales thrilled by UEFA Super Cup in Cardiff

Football Association of Wales president Trefor Lloyd Hughes, chief executive Jonathan Ford and former national-team captain Kevin Ratcliffe discuss staging the UEFA Super Cup.

Cardiff welcomes Real Madrid CF and Sevilla FC for the UEFA Super Cup, the first time Wales has staged such a fixture, with the added bonus of locally-born Gareth Bale being in the Madrid squad. The 12 August match takes place at the five-year-old Cardiff City Stadium, which will have an increased capacity of around 33,000 for the game.
