WELSH rugby stars of the future will return to Colwyn Bay next year. 

The Wales Under 20 squad will play three Six Nations home matches at Parc Eirias against Italy at 7.10pm on Friday, January 31; France on Saturday, February 22 at 6.05pm and Scotland at 7pm on Friday, March 14. 

All three matches will be televised live, with the opener on BBC Wales and the final two on S4C.

Cllr Graham Rees, Cabinet Member for Tourism, Marketing and Leisure said, "It's a real treat for rugby fans in North Wales to have these games on the doorstep again in 2014.” 

Wales Under 20 enjoyed their most successful season ever last year, reaching the final of the Junior World Championship after an impressive Six Nations campaign - with home matches played in Parc Eirias. 

Wales Under 20 head coach Byron Hayward said: "We are really looking forward to returning to Colwyn Bay. 

“Eirias provides a wonderful home for the side, the facilities are second to none for an international age grade match and the level of support we receive, both from the staff and the fans, really gives everyone a boost. 

"The lessons we learned in the Six Nations, especially in the final match against England, were invaluable when we came to the Junior World Championship in June. 

"We have completed a series of training sessions and position specific workshops and we have a three day camp in January before finalising the squad.” 

Tickets are on sale at Venue Cymru, £15 seated, £10 terrace or £5 concessions. 

A three match pass is available for £30 for a seat at all three games.
