The parade will begin at Cardiff Castle at 4pm and end at the Cardiff City Stadium at 5.30pm, allowing Wales supporters to show their appreciation to manager Chris Coleman and his side.

Entertainment on stage at the Cardiff City Stadium will begin from 5.15pm – including music from Manic Street Preachers – while the players and staff presentation will begin at 6.45pm.

FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford said: “We feel this event is a great way of everyone celebrating what has been a historic period for Welsh football.

“The scenes we have seen both at home and over in France have been fantastic and we hope that our passionate supporters can enjoy another moment with the players to end a memorable few weeks.”

Wales topped a group containing England, Slovakia and Russia before defeating Northern Ireland 1-0 in the last 16.

They came from behind to claim a 3-1 victory over Belgium, currently ranked second in the FIFA’s world rankings, before succumbing to Portugal.
