The Welsh Cup final between Bangor City and Prestatyn Town will be held at The Racecourse Ground, Wrexham on Monday 6 May.

This will be the first time since 2006 that the final will be held at the famous venue, which first hosted a Welsh Cup final in 1880.

Back in 2006 it was Rhyl who overcame Bangor City 2-0 to win the Welsh Cup but the Racecourse has seen three triumphant visits by the Citizens.

In 1889 Bangor, on their first visit to the final, beat Nortwich Victoria 2-1, and more recently they beat Connah’s Quay Nomads on penalties in 1998 and beat Cwmbrân 1-0 in 2000.

This will be Prestatyn Town’s firs ever appearance in the Welsh Cup final.

The game will be live on Sgorio with the match kicking off at 3.00pm.
