Welsh businesses to benefit from Team GB at Olympics 2012

With the success of Team GB men's football team, that included several Welsh International, against Uruguay last night the players remain in Cardiff to face South Korea on Saturday.

'Businesses in Wales must capitalise on the opportunities created by an Olympic Games on home soil,' say Wales-on-line.

Iestyn Davies, Head of External Affairs at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in Wales, said he hoped the Olympics would make an “immediate impact on the economy”.

He said a good Games could create a more optimistic mood while the increased number of visitors to Britain also provided an opportunity for businesses. Olympics football fans have flocked to Cardiff in their thousands, as shown in our picture galleries.

“Each has an impact on the economy, not least people just feeling more positive about what’s going on,” he said. “The economy is very susceptible to change.”

The large crowds filling Cardiff city centre for the men’s and women’s football fixtures could be a boom for businesses, he added. “Hopefully we will see that now in the next two or three weeks.”
