TICKETS are on sale for Wrexham AFC's next two league matches at The Racecourse as Covid rules in Wales begin to be relaxed.

On Friday, First Minister Mark Drakeford announced that outdoor activities would be the first to see restrictions eased as the tougher Omicron measures are phased out over the next two weeks.

Restrictions will be lifted on Saturday that will allow 500 people to attend outdoor events.

Depending on if the downward trend of infections in Wales continues, crowds can return to sporting events from Friday, January 21, and outdoor hospitality can operate without additional reasonable measures.

After the announcement, Wrexham AFC put tickets on sale for the National League matches against Grimbsy on Tuesday, January 25, and Maidenhead on Saturday, January 29.

The club said: "Tickets for Grimsby (H) and Maidenhead (H) available to members from 3pm."

The decision also allows fans to attend Wales’ first Six Nations Championship home match against Scotland in Cardiff on February 12.

During the briefing, Mr Drakeford said the ban on spectators watching professional sport in Wales was taken on advice from health experts and denied the lifting was due to “pressure”.

“The pressures are absolutely real when you are making decisions of this sort,” he said.

“But the pressure that my Cabinet respond to are the pressures that are in the data.

“Those are the things that lead us to take the actions that we do and not the understandable representations by people in the individual parts of Welsh society that they occupy.

“It’s absolutely right that people speak up, speak up for sporting events, speak up for hospitality, speak up for what is happening in our schools.

“That’s absolutely right and proper, but the pressures that we respond to are the pressures that when you put all those things together, add up to an impact on people’s lives and the services that we rely on.”
