Some of the biggest names in Welsh football will come together for an indoor six-a-side tournament that promises to be as competitive as ever.
Played on a specially designed indoor carpet to ensure maximum ball control and with three quarter sized goals to ensure maximum excitement, the atmosphere will be electric as fans from all across Wales come to support their local heroes in a unique and inspiring setting.
Each team will consist of ten players, with unlimited substitutions. Based on a simple round-robin league system, each game will last 16 minutes, with the top two sides progressing to the final.
With Ian Rush and Neville Southall starring for an All-Star Welsh Legends side, along with the likes of Mickey Thomas playing for Wrexham Legends, Jan Molby for Swansea City Legends and Kevin Ratcliffe for Cardiff City Legends, the cream of Welsh football will be well represented.
Nigel Walker, BBC Wales Executive Producer, said "The BBC are very much looking forward to what promises to be a top-class evening of football. Wales in known for its interest in sport and we are sure this event will capture the imagination of all Welsh football fans".
Such is the furore surrounding an event of this kind that the players themselves are equally as excited to be dusting off their boots for the teams that helped make their name.
Mickey Thomas, himself a Wrexham legend thanks in part to his wonder strike that secured victory against Arsenal in the 1992 FA Cup, said "It's great to be back playing for Wrexham and renewing the rivalries between the lads. Everyone remembers my goal for Wrexham in the FA Cup and how much it meant - hopefully I can do the same again here!".
Neville Southall, ex-Welsh goalkeeper with over 100 caps for his country, said, "We all look forward to these events but because this is with just Welsh teams, it becomes extra special. The fans are second to none in Wales and with the atmosphere they'll create, it's sure to be a great night".
The first event of its kind, this promises to be a fantastic night of family entertainment. With the arena expecting a capacity crowd, make sure you book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
