The Football Association of Wales (FAW) and Movember are tackling male suicide rates this November with the unveiling of their new ‘A Man of More Words’ spot.

The video has been launched ahead of Wales’ match against Hungary, which will determine which of the two sides qualifies automatically for next summer’s UEFA EURO 2020. The tournament will take place in 12 cities around the continent including London, Glasgow and Dublin.

The bilingual spot features players such as Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey and Ethan Ampadu highlighting the number of men who die by suicide, urging fans to become ‘men of more words’ as well as spending the 15-minute half-time break during the Hungary game to message and chat to their friends instead of opening social media.
