WRU Face Mask Design Winner with Keep Wales Safe
Written by Gavin on 18th March 2022
The winner of the Welsh Rugby Union’s competition for a new face mask design has been revealed as 11-year-old Amelie David.
Amelie’s design was chosen as the winner by Welsh rugby players and coaches, out of almost five hundred other entries from children and schools across Wales.
The design competition, which was part of a partnership with Keep Wales Safe, provides a reminder of how we can all help disrupt the transmission of COVID-19 and help keep Welsh rugby safe.
Welsh rugby stars posed with Amelie, whilst sporting the winning design at training ahead of the final round of the Guinness Six Nations.
As well as seeing her winning face mask design worn by players, Amelie will be at the Wales versus Italy match in Cardiff to see her Welsh rugby heroes in action,
Wales Team Manager Martyn Williams said, “It was fantastic to receive so many impressive designs, but Amelie’s stood out to us because of it’s clear and simple message.
”We particularly liked the line she added about kicking COVID-19 into touch. We hope she enjoys her day at the Stadium supporting Wales.”
“It was so exciting to find out my design won the face mask competition. I really enjoyed doing my design and I can’t wait to go to the Principality Stadium with my family and friends to see Wales play Italy and see my favourite rugby players wearing my design.”
Face coverings are still strongly recommended to be worn in indoor public places and you must still wear face coverings in shops, health and social care settings and on public transport. COVID-19 is still a risk, so we must continue to do what we can to limit the spread.
