Mistar Urdd has been announced as the official mascot for 'Team Wales' at next year's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.


The announcement was made during Eisteddfod T on Wednesday.


The decision to appoint Mistar Urdd as the official mascot for 'Team Wales' is part of an ongoing partnership between Yr Urdd and Commonwealth Games Wales.


Chief Executive of Yr Urdd Siân Lewis said: “It’s really important for the Urdd to have partners like Team Wales because together, there’s no better way to reach and inspire young people in every corner of Wales.


"It’s great to see Mistar Urdd in his Team Wales kit visiting Urdd clubs and seen nationally for the first time a part of Eisteddfod T. I’m confident Mistar Urdd and our collaboration with Team Wales will inspire children and young people across Wales to enjoy sport and to follow the journey of Team Wales as they prepare for the Commonwealth Games next year.”
