Wales could play more Principality Stadium games, says Giggs

Manager Ryan Giggs has not ruled out his Wales team playing more matches at the Principality Stadium.
 
Wales return to the 74,500 capacity stadium for a friendly with Spain.
 
Giggs says moving games to the stadium will give more Welsh fans the opportunity to see matches.
 
"We always look before each game and evaluate it," he told BBC Sport Wales. "What we think will be the best to not only get a result but also for the Welsh fans to see games."
 
The national side have played the vast majority of their matches in recent years at the Cardiff City Stadium, and Giggs says from a sporting stand-point, there is no need to change.
 
"You've seen the success we've had at the Cardiff City Stadium," Giggs said.
 
"The players enjoy playing there, we've had success there so there's no reason to change really."
 
Since facing England in 2011 in a European Championship qualifier, Wales have played 24 of their 28 home matches at the 33,000 capacity Cardiff City Stadium, three at the Liberty Stadium which holds 21,088 fans and one at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli which has a capacity of 14,870.
 
"A game against Spain has captured the imagination," Giggs said. "Moving it to the Principality where I've witnessed big games against Germany, against Italy and the fans turn up, it's a brilliant occasion and one that the players and fans should look forward to.
 
"The players will have to rise to the occasion because Spain are the standout team over the last ten, fifteen years."
 
It is understood Wales' UEFA Nations League games against the Republic of Ireland and Denmark in September and November are still likely to be played at the Cardiff City Stadium.
