Meet the Cardiff students playing in the Europa League
Instead of enjoying a summer break the students of Cardiff Metropolitan University FC are busy preparing for European football adventure and are dreaming of facing Manchester United after qualifying for the Europa League.

The Welsh side ­- the first British student-only team to qualify for Europe - will visit Luxembourg’s Progrès Niederkorn on Thursday 27 June in the first leg of the Preliminary Round.

The students sealed a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Bala Town in the Welsh Premier League play-off final last month and could face Premier League sides Wolves or Manchester United if they progress in the competition.
