Fans will have the chance to get their hands on the Champions League trophy, when it comes to Latham Park.

The Champions League final comes to Wales in June, at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Ahead of that, former Wales striker Ian Rush will be heading to Switzerland to pick up the trophy, and will then take it around the country.

On Wednesday May 3, it will enter Powys with a visit to Welshpool High School.

Then on Saturday May 6, between 9am and 11am, a session open to the public will take place at Latham Park, where there will be photo opportunities.

There will be more information available closer to the date.

The trophy will then leave and head to Brecon Leisure Centre later on the day.

Gwyn Derfel, Secretary of the WPL said: "I'm really pleased that the trophy will visit another six of our member clubs.

"It is great that the eyes of the footballing world will be on our country, and our National League clubs between now and the UFA Final on June 3."

Press Officer Jonny Drury added: "This is fantastic for the club, to have the most famous trophy in European football at Latham Park.

"We hope we can make this into a really good occasion, and I think as one of the WPL founder members, it is great that we will host the trophy."
