Waka Waka: Be part of the Red Wall in Qatar with S4C

21 October 2022

- Live coverage of every Wales game in 2022 FIFA World Cup™ on S4C

- Unrivalled Welsh broadcast team including Gwennan Harries and Owain Tudur Jones

- Coverage that focuses only on Wales, including player interviews and news from Welsh camp

With Rob Page and his team heading to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, Wales supporters can follow every step of their journey on S4C: the home of Welsh Football.

S4C will show every Wales match during the World Cup and supporters can be assured that our coverage of this historic competition will focus on Wales - and only Wales.

S4C coverage will also reflect the excitement of the nation with extensive build-up prior to each match, including player interviews and the latest news from the Welsh camp.

Leading the S4C team in Qatar will be presenter Dylan Ebenezer.

Dylan said: "We've followed this brilliant Wales team on S4C for years and it's surreal that the journey has taken us all the way to the FIFA World Cup. We are all passionate Wales supporters and we want to see Gareth Bale and the boys emulate John Charles and the legendary team of 1958 – and go even further.

"I have been lucky enough to go to two European Championships as part of the S4C team, but the World Cup is going to be even more special for all Welsh people – the players, supporters and us, who have the privilege of working in Qatar.

"We will bring the atmosphere of the stadium to the living rooms, pubs and football clubs of the nation. Whatever happens, we will see history being made live on S4C."

Wales' three match in Group B will all take place in the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, and bringing the latest news from the touch-line will be pitch-side reporter, Sioned Dafydd.

Sioned said: "S4C is the Wales fan's choice for the FIFA World Cup.

"It's a massive honour to be part of the team following Wales at a World Cup and bringing Welsh language coverage to the viewers at home.

"Working at the game against Ukraine in June was a real career highlight for me and one of the best nights of my life. I really hope that we'll witness more euphoric occasions like this in Qatar."

Gwennan Harries, former Wales striker and S4C World Cup co-commentator.

Joining lead commentator Nic Parry will be co-commentator and former Wales striker Gwennan Harries, who scored 18 goals in 56 caps for her country.

Gwennan said: "Hearing that I got the call-up to be part of the S4C team in Qatar was as exciting to me as hearing about my first call-up for Wales!

"I can't wait to get out there and see Wales on the biggest stage in world football, and hopefully see some performances that we'll remember for years and decades to come."

Providing expert analysis on each game will be Owain Tudur Jones, the former Wales midfielder with seven international caps to his name.

Further additions to the S4C World Cup team will be revealed on the @S4Cchwaraeon social media channels over the coming weeks.

Owain added: "Seeing Wales alongside the world's best teams at a World Cup is something that we have all dreamed of for so long.

"For me, it was a dream to play for Wales at a World Cup too and although that didn't quite work out, this is the nearest thing I could have to that experience.

"So I can't wait to be out there, hearing that anthem for the first time and witnessing a special part of Welsh footballing history."

S4C's coverage of Wales in the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ will be produced by BBC Wales.

To ramp up the excitement of the World Cup, S4C will also show a series of football programmes celebrating the history and culture of the beautiful game in Wales.

We'll take a longing look back on Wales' only previous World Cup finals appearance in documentary, Bois '58, and recall every step of the more recent historical campaign to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Pob Cam i Qatar.

The feast of football also includes the Jonny Owen film, Cewri Cwpan y Byd, which charts the rising fortunes of Welsh football over a tumultuous and transformational 18-year period, and a programme telling the mesmerising story behind the song adopted as the team's unofficial anthem, Yma o Hyd. Each programme can be enjoyed with English subtitles.

S4C social media channels will also provide daily content and updates from Qatar during the FIFA World Cup, as well as online preview shows the evening before each Wales game.
