Team of Welsh University Students Could Be Among Sides Aberdeen or Rangers Meet in Europe

A team of Welsh university students could be among the sides Aberdeen or Rangers face in Europa League qualifying.

Cardiff Met – the football team of Cardiff Metropolitan University – have enjoyed one of their most successful seasons ever, finishing seventh in the Welsh Premier League table to qualify for the European play-offs.

The team of strictly students beat Carmarthen Town in the semi-final to set up a final clash with Bangor City on Saturday.

And if they manage to win that, Cardiff Met would enter Europa League qualifying at the same stage as some famous teams, including Aberdeen, Rangers and Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Just imagine a team of students turning up at Pittodrie or Ibrox to attempt a European surprise?

We’d love to see Cardiff Met beat Bangor to get into Europe as it’d be the first time a university team has competed in European football.

But they’ll have a big job on to emerge victorious at the weekend against a Bangor team who have regularly competed in Europe.
