We Wear the Same Shirt



The Welsh Football Trust are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new football initiative that has been created in partnership with Time to Change Wales entitled 'We Wear the Same Shirt'.

We Wear The Same Shirt will aim to break down the barriers faced by those living with a mental health condition by playing football through a tailored programme that aligns mental with physical wellbeing.

The weekly football programme, which launched on Tuesday 3rd November in Merthyr and Wednesday 4th November in Newtown, promises to be free of the pressures of competition and is free thanks to Sports Wales funding. The programme will expand to two more clubs in Autumn 2016 with Newport County F.C. and Wrexham A.F.C. starting to host weekly sessions.

We Wear The Same Shirt runs every Wednesday at Newtown A.F.C. from 12.30pm to 2:00pm and every Tuesday at Merthyr Town F.C. from 1.00pm to 2.30pm.
