The Cymru South[1] is a regional football league in Wales, covering the southern half of the country, which forms one of two parts of the Cymru Championship. It has semi-professional status clubs and is at the second level of the Welsh football league system. The first year of its operation will be 2019-20 with the Football Association of Wales owning and administering the Tier 2 leagues for the first time. These changes follow from a review of the Welsh Football Pyramid.[2]
