Wales urged to turn red for Team Wales

On March 23, Wales turns red to show support for the Welsh athletes competing at the Commonwealth Games in Australia next month.

It is an opportunity to show how we Inspire, we Respect, and we Believe in our Welsh sporting talent - whether at grassroots or elite level.

Sport Wales is organising a school competition for primary and secondary schools across the country, as well as offering online resources and ideas to help businesses, organisations and sport clubs to get involved.

Everybody is encouraged to wear red on the day itself and share the celebrations using the hashtags #WeAreRed and #CymryCoch on social media.

Non Stanford, who will captain Team Wales over the 11 days of sport in the Gold Coast said: "Welsh support is absolutely invaluable to us when we're overseas competing and we would love it if, on March 23rd, you could show your support for us. We hope that, as a team, we inspire you to try a new sport and get active. Let's do this together."

Sarah Powell, Sport Wales chief executive added: "We know what great sport supporters we are and 'We Are Red day' is our chance to unite and get behind the Welsh athletes who come from all corners of the country. This is an opportunity for us all to show Team Wales that we will be cheering them on as they put on their red shirt and give their all at the Games. We want to see you all join together and wear your finest red on March 23rd.  Let's show what sport means to us and unite this proud sporting nation!"
