Wales v USA, November 21st 2022, Deri Community Centre

On Monday November 21st 2022, Wales played their first match in a World Cup in 64 years against the USA. We decided that this would be a great opportunity to organise a special event for our Octopus Fan Club members and the local community.

The event involved games, food, drinks and of course the match! We also had a special visit from Cardiff rugby players Ellis Jenkins and Matthew Morgan who stuck around to take some selfies, sign autographs and chat with 'Fans'.

We had some big winners with our 'Spin the Wheel' game with Kate and Natasha both bagging themselves £50 credit on their Octopus Energy account. We've also planted 13 trees in name of all of those who won this prize on the wheel.

With the score 1-0 to the USA at half time, we raffled off some Cardiff Rugby tickets to keep everyones spirits high. Jake & Rostyn we hope you enjoy your selected games!

Thankfully, Gareth Bale executed the perfect penalty to ensure that Wales secured 1 point in their first group match of the tournament, with the match finishing at 1 - 1.

Thank you to everyone for a fantastic evening, we hope you all enjoyed as much as we did!

Diolch yn fawr, Deri!
