Richmond Park, Carmarthen

Venue for a group game and a semi-final.

Richmond Park
Capacity: 1,451
Matches: England v France*, Wales v England*, Finland v Norway*, Finland v Germany, semi-final 2

• A five-minute walk from Carmarthen's attractive old town centre, Richmond Park has been home to 2007 Welsh Cup winners Carmarthen Town AFC since 1952.

• The stadium hosted its first major European club match in July 2007 when Carmarthen lost 8-0 to Norwegian side SK Brann in UEFA Cup qualifying, Scottish striker Robbie Winters scoring a first-half hat-trick.

• Wales's men's Under-19 and U17 teams have each played at the venue, which saw wins against Turkey for both Germany (2-0) and Wales (1-0) in 2011 UEFA European Women's U19 Championship qualifying.

Carmarthen
Carmarthen is, according to folklore, the birthplace of the magician Merlin (in a cave just outside the town to be exact). A number of sporting stars also started life there, including tournament ambassador Joe Allen.

*Games moved to Llanelli because of waterlogged pitch
