CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS will use the Cardiff City Stadium for their Champions League campaign.

Nomads will head to the Welsh capital for the club’s first ever foray into European club football’s biggest competition should they be handed a home draw next month.

Andy Morrison’s men, back in training at Colliers Park, will find out who they will face in the first qualifying round draw on Sunday, August 9, with the second qualifying round draw taking place the following day.

Given the reduced timeframe available to play matches, the qualifying rounds will be played as a single knockout tie on August 18/19, as opposed to the two-legged affairs Nomads have enjoyed over the last four years in the Europa League.

Nomads have chosen the Cardiff City Stadium, rather than the likes of Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground or Rhyl’s Belle Vue to stage a home match, and in a statement, the Flintshire side explained: “The stadium is already prepared for Covid-safe regulations with Cardiff having recently resumed their chase for promotion.”
