Speaking about her appointment, Grainger said: "I'm proud to become Cymru's National Team Manager and I can't wait for the challenge ahead. Every part of my career has been deliberate and thought out to build towards taking a senior team to a major tournament. It's an exciting time for everyone and I'm looking forward to working with staff and players to fulfil everyone's potential to go to the next level. It's an opportunity for me and the players to write a new chapter and build on the story of women's football in Wales."
FAW President Kieran O'Connor added: "I am thrilled to announce Gemma's appointment as Women's National Team Manager. Following a thorough recruitment process, we now look forward to the future with the Women's National Team, with ambitions for growth and success in the women's game in Wales."
Head of Women's and Girls Football at the FAW, Lowri Roberts, also welcomed Grainger's appointment: "We have made good progress across the women's game in Wales over recent years and with Gemma's appointment and a clear commitment from the organization to the women's game we are giving the team the best possible chance for success. Qualification for a major tournament would be the catalyst to step change growth across the entire female game in Wales - we can't wait to get to work."
Grainger will take charge of Wales for the first time when they face Canada (9th April) and Denmark (13th April) next month.
