The next two months mark a significant period for Wales men's football manager Ryan Giggs and women's boss Jayne Ludlow.
Ludlow's side get their Euro 2021 qualifying campaign underway with a trip to the Faroe Islands on August 29.
While the men's team return to Euro 2020 qualifying action when they host Azerbaijan at the Cardiff City Stadium on September 6.
Both sides hold dreams of making their respective tournament finals, but that's always an uphill task in international football as history has shown.
Giggs' men began with optimism but having slipped to back-to-back defeats against Croatia and Hungary in June, their chances of sealing a place at next summer's tournament are slim. They can probably afford no more slip-ups.
Wales sit fourth in Group E, six points adrift of leaders Hungary who have played a game more.
Talisman Gareth Bale looks to have emerged back into Zinedine Zidane's plans at Real Madrid and will provide Giggs with a boost.
Aaron Ramsey, who is yet to feature in the campaign after suffering a hamstring injury, recently made his debut for new club Juventus and is set to return to international duty (he's since been ruled out).
