S4C have announced today that they have obtained the rights of the next sixteen Wales senior games.

The Welsh-language broadcaster will broadcast Wales’ UEFA Nations League and European Championship fixtures. It means fans will be able to watch the Welsh national team on free-to-air television.

Coverage begins this Thursday when Wales host Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium.

In the last meeting between the two sides, a goal from James McClean gave Ireland victory in their crucial FIFA World Cup Qualifier, causing Wales to miss out on a playoff spot.

It includes the two friendlies against Albania and Spain. The friendly against Spain is the first game in seven years that Wales will have played at the Principality Stadium.

Wales travel to Aarhaus to play Denmark on Sunday, before playing Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in October and Denmark at the Cardiff City Stadium in November.

Former Wales internationals John Hartson, Malcolm Allen and Owain Tudor-Jones will front the punditry team for the Qualifiers, with coverage hosted by Dylan Ebeneezer.

It will be produced by Rondo Media.

S4C Content Director Amanda Rees said: “This is excellent news for S4C’s viewers and to the supporters of Welsh football.

We all remember the last Euro competition in 2016 and the joy and pleasure that came to me everyone in Wales. It was a privilege to bring those experiences to our viewers.

“I hope the road to 2020 will be just as exciting and successful on the field and on the screen.”
