Many football clubs around Wales are benefiting from the Football Association of Wales 'Kick Back' scheme, where they are able to receive commission from tickets sold.
Some 600 clubs around Wales have been involved and this week, Wales manager, Gary Speed presented a cheque to Karen Stevens and members of the Canton Cross Vaults Football team in Cardiff for their commission.
The monies raised (more than £250) will help to pay for ground fees for the rest of the season. Other clubs are using the funds for equipment and maintenance work at their clubhouses or grounds.
Karen said: "This really has been a great initiative as we have been able to buy tickets and help support our own club at the same time."
