#DreigiauCymru – Your Cymru heroes across Wales!
As part of Cymru’s UEFA EURO 2020 squad announcement, the FAW has partnered with Cadw to launch an exciting initiative across the country this summer.
26 dragon monoliths, #DreigiauCymru, were installed in historical sites across Wales prior to the UEFA EURO 2020 squad announcement on Sunday 30 May. Each player chosen to represent Cymru at this summer’s tournament has been assigned a castle or historical site across the country, which fans can visit and log their progress as they aim to complete their digital sticker book on TogetherStronger.Cymru.
Fans will be able to visit the dragons throughout the tournament and share a selfie on social media using the #DreigiauCymru hashtag. The TogetherStronger.Cymru website will also show FAW events taking place in their local area as well as information about the historical site and chosen player.
The FAW sees Welsh history, culture and language as a key part of its identity and the aim of the partnership is to raise awareness of our history whilst encouraging fans to visit the Cadw sites as part of an active lifestyle. Cadw will also be offering FAW Red Wall members 20% off Cadw membership for the duration of the tournament.
Cadw is the Welsh Government’s historic environment service, tasked with caring for our historic places and inspiring current and future generations.
Cadw aims to shape a Wales where our historic places are cared for, understood and shared by everyone and continue to play a vital role in shaping modern Wales. These historic places provide a living link to our diverse histories and help us make sense of our place in a changing world.
