Football has been played in Bangor since the late 1870’s, with Bangor City joining the Football Association of Wales in in 1877. There have been many memorable accolades over the years, and “The Welsh Cup has been a favourite trophy of Bangor City over the years. City has won the trophy eight times – only Wrexham, Cardiff and Swansea have won it more often.”
Having had a couple of homes over the years, they moved to their current purpose-built stadium at Nantporth, on the banks of the Menai Straits, in 2012. “Immediately popular due to its excellent playing surface and facilities, the stadium has become the venue of choice for representative matches in North West Wales.”
Bangor City FC host Wales under 21 games, Europa League games, even Champions League games have been held there.
The Welsh FA use it as a training base; Wales ladies play there.
