THE Welsh Cup champions will be crowned at Rodney Parade this year.

The Football Association of Wales has announced that both the finals of the men’s JD Welsh Cup and women’s Bute Energy Welsh Cup will be held in Newport.

The finalists for the men’s tournament will be decided later this month when Connay’s Quay Nomads take on Bala Town and The New Saints go up against Cardiff Met.

The winners will lock horns on Sunday, April 28 (kick-off 5.25pm) for glory in the third oldest national cup competition in the world.

That game takes place the day after the Dragons take on Connacht at Rodney Parade in the United Rugby Championship (kick-off 8pm).

Newport County play their final game of the season – unless they sneak into the League Two play-offs – that weekend when they travel to Bradford City that weekend.

The final of the women’s cup will take place on Sunday, May 5 when Cardiff City and Wrexham meet (kick-off 5.25pm).

Nick Davies, FAW senior competitions manager, said: “The Welsh Cup Finals are a key moment in the domestic calendar and 2023/24 is no different.

“Taking the finals to one of our premier venues in Wales offers us the chance to give our prestigious Welsh Cup competitions the prominence and profile they deserve.

“We are excited to be working alongside staff at Rodney Parade to deliver two great occasions and I'm looking forward to seeing the finalists battle it out for our famous trophies.”

Both finals will be available to watch live on S4C and online – BBC iPlayer, S4C Clic and Sgorio’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
