Legendary pub, the Turf Hotel, has sold out of wristbands for their ‘fan zone’ during two of Wales’ World Cup matches.

The pub, located next to Wrexham AFC’s Racecourse Ground and often associated with the club, is holding the adult-only event in the pub's car park and will see the games broadcast on a big screen.

The ‘fan zone’ is in place for both of Wales’ matches against USA with a capacity of 500 people per game and in just seven hours all 1,000 wristbands have been sold.

The wristbands were on sale for £5 per person per game.
