Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium

Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium

The stadium is the world’s oldest international football ground currently in use, having hosted the first ever Welsh home international match in 1877.

Glyndŵr University acquired the stadium, the home of Wrexham FC and the Crusaders rugby league team, in July 2011.

As well as safeguarding a key community asset for north east Wales, the move offers the university many opportunities to improve academic provision and student experience.

The stadium is used by students across the University from journalism, business and history to sports students and more. For example TV production and technology, sound technology and media students filmed and edited an international rugby league fixture between Wales and France at the stadium. This also included a workshop from the BBC.

Sport and exercise science students film matches for both Wrexham FC and North Wales Crusaders and analyse these as part of their course work and sports coaching students get hands on experience by coaching local children and community groups

The stadium will also be the centrepiece for the development of sport-based community outreach programmes with partners who currently use the stadium, such as the Wrexham FC Racecourse Community Foundation.
