The Welsh Football Trust (Welsh: Ymddiriedolaeth Bêl-droed Cymru) (WFT) (founded 1996) is recognised as a governing body of sport in Wales by Sport Wales. It was established by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) to encourage more children in Wales to play football, to develop player and coaching talent and to support the future success of Welsh national teams. In addition to the FAW, the WFT is supported by the Welsh Assembly Government, Sport Wales and the Premier League.[1]

The Welsh Football Trust is based at the new home of Welsh football, the National Football Development Centre, Dragon Park, Newport International Sports Village, Newport.[2]
