Frequently Asked Questions
What is the 1876 Club?
The 1876 Club is the Football Association of Wales Official Hospitality Programme. We have chosen that name because the Football Association of Wales was founded in 1876.
What packages are available and what do they cost?
There are two main types of package available at most matches although the precise package content varies from stadium to stadium.
Where available the Suite Package offers an exclusive glass-fronted facility facing the pitch with the seats immediately outside. The Suite must be purchased for its full capacity. Full details are available on the “Hospitality Packages” page of this website.
The Gold Package is an all-inclusive package with all your food and beverage provided in a function room within the stadium and the very best seats from which to watch the match. There are no minimum numbers for the Gold Package. Full details are available on the “Hospitality Packages” page of this website.
