The Wales 'C' National Team is a football team that represents Wales at non-league level. Players with a Welsh qualification, under 23 years of age and who play for clubs outside the English Football League are eligible. The squad is normally made up of players from the Welsh Premier League and the Conference National league. Many players who have been capped for the Wales Semi-Pro team have gone on to play at a higher level.

Home matches are played at various grounds around the country. The Wales Semi Pro team compete in both the Four Nations Tournament and the International Challenge Trophy. The team is managed by former Wales international Terry Boyle.
