Thursday 16th March - ATHLETIC v SWEDEN

​As part of their west Wales tour, the Swedish national squad will visit Athletic Park next Thurday 16th March. We are delighted to entertain Sweden with the kick off scheduled for 7pm. The tourists then go on to play Nantgaredig as part of Nant's 50th anniversary season celebrations on the following Saturday.

​This is the second occasion that Athletic have entertained a full international squad having played Ivory Coast as a warm up for their 1999 RWC campaign. Wales hooker and Scarlets captain Ken Owens was a 12 year old ball boy for that game! Unfortunately Ken is not available this time - due to a certain fixture in Paris.

Come down and support the boys in a unique fixture & welcome our scandinavian friends.
