Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism Dafydd Elis -Thomas said:

“Modern, accessible and sustainable facilities are important if we are to encourage and support people of all ages to lead healthy and active lives.

“We know the positive impact sport can have on our health and wellbeing, whether it’s as a participant, a volunteer or a spectator. Sport also plays an important part in binding communities, giving young people aspiration, raising our international profile and creating economic benefits for Wales. With this investment, we hope we will create a place for sport for more people.”
